I installed Windows 8.1 today and I installed Google Drive client on it. But I can't get to open the program. I tried many ways to open its exe file but it doesn't launch. Is there any incompatibility of it with Windows 8.1? Please help.

Others are having the issue too, have you tried running in Compatibility Mode?

I tried to run both web and offline (30mb) installer in SBIE, but neither installed.

PS: Google doesn't like Microsoft. It's a known fact, since Google blocks Youtube playback on WP devices.

I found that running Google drive as an administrator is the only way to make it work. Of course you have to click"allow this program to make changes to your computer" what a pain. I tried compatibility settings but they were non effective.
