Hmmm... a lot of people have read... no one's responded. In other words, no clue on what causes the problem, but lots of other people having sync issues. I'm guessing...

Yea, I am having this same problem. It is certainly a computer specific issue as photostream is workingfine on my ipad and another windows machine.
icloud control panel creates the "Photo Stream" folder and the subfolder: "Upload" but fails to create the sub folder: "My Photo Stream" and sync it with the photos. Oddly enough the iExlporer bookmarks are updating so i am doubting it to be a connectivity issue.
The problem machine:
windows 7 home 64bit
comodo firewall (windowsfirewall turned off)
but works fine on:
windows 7 pro 32bit
interested to know if anyone experiencing problems has similar setup?

My set up is Windows 7 Pro 32bit that it's not working on. I was using Kaspersky, but in an attempt to see if that was a problem, I switched it off completely and then even tried a different virus program. Didn't work.k
Mine still doesn't seem to be functioning - uploads or downloads. I'm at a loss. Hopefully they'll release an update to the software that works better. For now, photostream is pretty much useless for me...

I had this problem and it was due to a permissions issue. I needed to right-click on the downloads folder, click the security tab, click edit, select full control 'Allow' and then Apply, and it started working.

Interesting... although doesn't seem to be the case. I can't select them all at the moment (where I'm not sharing) but System and my username already has full control to the folder. So it doesn't seem to be the case here (and actually, was something I checked early on - I figured that was likely the problem, but doesn't seem to be at all).
I'm sort of an IT guy... so something like this drives me crazy when I can't fix it

I also could not get photostream to work on my windows pc ( 2 of them in fact) . However after doing as mentioned above...giving "Authenticated Users" full control to the photostream directories it started working...

Vista SP2 here, tried everything here but only uploads working (from the beginning before making any changes) but downloads from Photo Stream to Dowload folder on Vista PC have not worked once...
