You can't logon to a Microsoft OneDrive business account

When you try and login to Microsoft OneDrive business account the system may report that no login account can be found.

You'll notice that the sign in screen asks you to "Use your Microsoft account".




The issue here is that the login is expecting a personal account (such as live or Hotmail account) rather than your corporate or @domain.onmicrosoft.com account.

You can modify this by changing the following registry keys

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OneDrive]
"EnableAddAccounts"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OneDrive]
"DefaultToBusinessFRE"=dword:00000001

And close and restart OneDrive
%localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe


You will then see the “Work or school account” listed and should be able to login.



This is still using the standard OneDrive (not OneDrive for business application).
