MickPy Level 1 Level 1

I am rumming an up to date version of Windows 7. Have downloaded the icloud control panel for windows.  I put in my user name and password but the scrolling cicle rotates but will not open.


Can anyone give me any suggestions please?

AppleTV 2, iOS 4.3.3

    I have the same problem with two accounts.

    With the first account i can login. But this is my iTunes account and i do not need this.

    With the second account (me.com) I have the same problem from MickPy. This account is needed for the sync from PC (Outlook Calendar and Contacts), but I see only the scrolling cicle :-(

    Same problem.  Have iCloud working on two accounts across 3 macs, 2 iphones, and 2 ipads but cannot get it to work on a Windows 7 machine.  I installed, uninstalled, reinstalled the agent for windows a couple of times and i get the same issue as the original poster. 


    Immediately after the install the agent synchronizes the calendar and contact.  That works fine.  My icloud contacts and calendar show up in Outlook 2010.  But when i make changes to these items they do not get replicated back to icloud.  When I go to launch the icloud control panel to try and diagnose the problem i cannot get it to open.


    Here is some additional data:


    The Outlook plugin is enabled.


    There are two processes running: icloud and icloudservices.


    The icloud icon shows up in the system tray. 


    When i right click on the system tray icon and attempt to open the control panel nothing happens.


    When I open Windows Control Panel and attempt to launch icloud from there....nothing happens. 


    If i kill both processes and then click on the iCloud icon in Windows control panel, the processes restart but the iCloud GUI does not open up.

    I do have the same problem on my Windows 7 64bit machine. iCloud login via control panel works fine for my original itunes id, but not for the migrated mobileme id. It works however on all other devices (iPhone, iPad, Macbook). Since the login works for my itunes id, it cannot be any firewall related issue, nor anything with the icloud control panel itself. There has to be some kind of bug with migrated mobileme accounts maybe? Hopefully someone figures it out asap.


    Sorry to not being able to provide a solution here.

    Hi there,


    I have the same issue as described by "t_e_r_r_y".


    Am running:


    • Win7 x64 SP1
    • Office 2010, x86, SP1


    Outlook is connected to Exchange 2003 on the same LAN.


    If I try to launch Outlook (in "normal" mode) it fails, hanging on "Starting" (it never gets any further). I see iCloud.exe load in Task Manager.


    If I end process tree for iCloud, Outlook still doesn't load.


    Outlook does load in Safe Mode (hold-down CTRL). I can see the iCloud plug-in is enabled though - odd.


    I cannot open the iCloud control panel (through Windows Control Panel, or via the task-bar) - nothing happens.


    I've repaired iCloud, no luck.


    I'll keep working on it, and post any updates if I get lucky.

    Hi all,

    I have solved my problem. I hope it works for you too.
    First I installed the uninstalled MobilMe Control Panel again.
    Then I access the System via the MobileMe Control Panel.
    Suddenly some message came with "migrate ..." (unfortunately, was once again away) and then opened up like a miracle the icloud Control Panel and I was with my "*. me.com" account loged in.
    Then uninstall the MobileMe control panel.
    Since then everything will go smoothly.

    pacampe that was such a mega help man, thanks so much.

    What they explained in there solved it. Not fully happy with Apple still but hey I guess I trust theyre comin'up with an install fix for us that use windows............. right Apple..?  Wasnt too hard to solve reading that link but the older people wanting to buy more Apple products (with the CASH to spend ) might have a bit of trouble doing that, Applecore; you guys really need to get on it. 


    Thanks again pacampe _b

    Same here, installed icloud on my pc to create new icloud account & can't find Icloud control panel anywhere, asked tech & was told its in internet & networks........ pffft only have internet options &  totally seperate is networks & connections. Is starting to feel like I need a degree in rocket science to work it out....... Apple wake up, you stuff is so hard to use !, Think about it & start making things simple, no one wants to buy something thats difficult to use, & I was thinking of buying a an Ipad for my mum ???? she can't even turn on a pc, thinks I'm going to check out what samsung has to offer.
