Can't logon to SkyDrive (http://skydrive.live.com/welcome.aspx -> 404)


Hi at all,
since a few days I can't logon to my skydrive account. The Uri 'http://skydrive.live.com/welcome.aspx' is not available and so I can't get the cid.
Maybe API changed ?

Skydrive.live.com is now office.live.com that is why you get the 404 error.

I thought it might have been a case of just replacing URLs in the code but there is more than that as much of the system has changed.

The client parses HTML and because the pages/elements have changed, the API crashes when it cannot find what it wants.

Seems to me like it could be a bit of work.

Hi ghollosy can you please come to the rescue!
Unfortunately the page changes broke the API.
Our projects depends on yours.

You can fix it with following url:

It's nearly the same like before the change happens, exept of "welcome.aspx". Replace it through "home.aspx".
The CID is now available in the html body of the last response. NOT in Location header of the 302 Response!
After this everthing seems to be the same.

ricoh your comment is gold!
Unfortunately the damages are greater than just logging in.
API is not parsing properly. I can only list root folder but I cannot list sub folder files or upload files any more.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi guys,

I'd like to come to rescue you, but unfortunately I hardly have free time to fix API.
So far I could only fix LogOn and CID problem (posted in a discussion), but the other parts of the API are still more or less unusable.
I'll try to fix as soon as possible, that's the only thing I can promise right now.
