Hi Jarvis,

Do you have /*AppCompat*/ in Cloud Boundary?

Do you see the file ownership when right click the file?

@jarvis2020 @Moe_Kinani note that from my experience, there is no need to add "/*AppCompat*/" as long as you make sure that there are no spaces in: "||".


Also, make sure “Office-365-ProPlus-1810-Allowed.xml” and "Office-365-ProPlus-1810-Exempt.xml" are added "Protected apps".

I did the first part but can you explain the part below? Where do I add a network boundary exactly?

Any help greatly appreciated.



When creating the policy you can do so under advanced settings... or do you mean something else?



I too am having the same error..... however, everything was working fine until about 2 weeks ago - another Windows 11 preview update.. then Onedrive for business broke... basically getting this work location error.....


noticed it only seems to apply to 'office' files - ie PDF opens and syncs okay... but not i can't use onedrive for business.... and company says no changes made at the back end to policies etc...


Any ideas.... is this a Windows 11/OneDrive for Business issue only?
