OneDrive sync client - How can I download the late...

Hi

 

I'm trying to download the latest OneDrive sync client from:

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/New-OneDrive-sync-client-release-notes-845dcf18-f921-435e-b...

 

By clicking "Install the latest Windows version". But when I do this I get downloaded the "17.3.6517.809" version not the latest "17.3.6674.1021" release.

 

The question is. How can I download the latest OneDrive sync client release?

noticed this as well, but haven't found a solution and also raised the same question in another thread.

Hopefully someone will enlighten us.

It is not clear if version 17.3.6674.1021 is still a preview version or it is a production version.

You can download it (officially presented as a preview version) from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=823059

According to @Hans Brender (https://hansbrender.com/2016/11/27/onedrive-for-business-next-generation-sync-client-alle-versionen/) it is already a production version.

Nevertheless, at the moment, as you have already noticed, there is not a download link officially presented as a production version.

Anyway, if it is really a production version (i.e. SharePoint sync has reached GA), the standard client will be soon automatically updated.

Microsoft The Netherlands informed me the new version is GA end of december. So as far is I know the version downloaded from the link I posted it is still in Preview (and it still has some bugs as you can read in another post).

We will see...

Even if it were a "Preview" version, how could I download it?

Thanks, is that link somewhere listed?

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

Yes. In https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Get-started-syncing-SharePoint-sites-with-the-new-OneDrive-....

Look for "Download and install the preview build of the new OneDrive sync client".

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

uahooo,

at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/New-OneDrive-sync-client-release-notes-845dcf18-f921-435e-b...

we can read:

Version 17.3.6707.1124 (Public Preview Released December 1, 2016)

but without the link to download it !!!

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

Sorry, this version is not on the changelog neither I have it (I do not have a MAC )

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

the link is general, English, from there you cand download the 6706 version and not the 6707 !!

the previous preview version was in Italian too...

a lot of confusion!!!

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

Hi there,

 

So I think we can agree that the OneDrive Release Notes und Download Options are messy at the moment. 

Today I noticed a different blue OneDrive for Business Icon, I've checked the version and it's "Version 2016 (Build 17.3.6720.1207)" which is anywhere mentioned.

The new last activity fly out menu is still not visible to me though, guess we'd need a registry change https://www.deskmodder.de/blog/2016/12/11/onedrive-zeigt-neue-ui-und-neues-icon-in-der-17-3-6720-120...

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

We have to wait for the final version, announced for this end quarter!!!

The graphic for the Mac version is the same for Windows....

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

Two days ago on December 14th a new production version of the new OneDrive Sync Client for both Windows and Mac were released.
1) Windows (Version 17.3.6720.1207)
2) Mac (Version 17.3.6720.1207)

There is a link to download each client from the New OneDrive sync client release notes.
https://support.office.com/en-us/article/New-OneDrive-sync-client-release-notes-845dcf18-f921-435e-b...

In our estate we have user running Version 17.3.6517.0809 and are not sure if this update will remove the older GROOVE.EXE client and deliver the following capabilities:
1) the ability to Sync SharePoint site libraries.
2) the ability to sync data shared with you by someone else

Has anyone yet rolled this out to you end users and how did you tackle this?

We have a combination of unmanaged Windows 7 and managed Windows 10 clients and Macs (for which we already have a client update strategy)

Cheers,

Richard

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

Unfortunately, the link to the Windows version contained in https://support.office.com/en-us/article/New-OneDrive-sync-client-release-notes-845dcf18-f921-435e-b..., still points to version 17.3.6517.0809.

It appears that it is not possible to download directly the bits of newer production releases (assuming that such bits are actually different from the bits of preview releases, which is not perfectly clear...).

On the other hand, for all my regular (i.e. not preview) users, yesterday the the latest OneDrive sync client (NGSC version 17.3.6720.1207) has been automatically downloaded and installed.

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

Looks like the updated .1207 version is being propulgated thru our users on our tenatnt.  Does anyone know if the updated client on the desktop instigates a resync of the files to OneDrive in the portal?  We are seeing an up tick on traffic and wondering if that coula be the cause..

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

No. I haven't seen any resync.

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

We are seeing our Windows 7 clients (which had user self-installed client version 17.3.6517.0809 previously) self-update to version 17.3.6720.1207 with no apparent network (or user) impact.

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

I have diffrent versions on diffrent machines (diffrent domains, diffrent tenants, diffrent OS)
Microsoft has released some new versions, but on the Microsoft Changelog they cut one version out!)

NGSC 17.3.6720.1207_ENG.png

 

the last Released version is 17.3.6720.1207

the last Preview  version is 17.3.6743.1212

This version is for manual download, you should read first

 Transition from the previous OneDrive for Business sync client for SharePoint sites.

and then

 Get started syncing SharePoint sites with the new OneDrive sync client - Preview.

so as today it will download 17.3.6743.1212

 

my german language post about all versions is ready, the english site will be ready in a few hours

 

 

 

 

Re: OneDrive sync client - How can I download the ...

Thank you for your information.

I read that the two versions for Windows and Mac always come together,

you know about the last preview for Mac?

Windows Preview: 17.3.6743

Mac Preview: 17.3.6720
