    Gaetano, I was following your steps, and as I was about to delete my photostream folders (step 2) I noticed they were full! 

     

    So, unfortunately, I"m yet another example of it suddenly working for me, without knowing why :/

     

    That said, it's nice to be one of the people who has it working, even tho I have no idea why.

    I forgot to say that before doing so i reinstalled icloud, so the steps i followed were:

    - Open iCloud Panel and uncheck PhotoStream

    - Close any iCloud process and delete the Photostream Folder you used before

    - Uninstall and install again iCloud

    - Open iCloud Panel and check photostream, click apply

     

    It is still working for me in this moment, i'm trying to put images in the upload folder and they are downloaded on my iphone and to take new photos on my iphone and they are downloaded on my Pc with Windows 7 64 bit

    Wow lots here. It sorta works for me. Just seems to be a single shot. I start the cpanel and have to uncheck photostream and apply, then check it and apply and photos come down immediatly. Then nothing again ever til I do the same thing again. cpanel is always running and logged in. It just not downloading from iCloud. Oh and if i delete the folders mentioned in another post, AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MediaStream\ dl,ul and the database, the files that have downloaded before come back down again which makes since. Guess thats how it keeps track of whats been downloaded before. But still a one shot deal. I may forget it and go with Dropbox myself. When the dropbox app is installed there is an option in cameraroll to send to dropbox. Its a manual process but it works. And the folders on the PC get populated. Apparently Photostream is a manual process too just on the PC side and I have the cpanel running all the time for no good reason. Oh and drobbox allows to delete individual photos. hmm I may have just talked myself into it! I do wish the Photostream would work tho great concept.

    How are you "sharing" these folders?

    Just chiming with another case of Photo Stream not working on Windows 7. Never has worked since day one, and I've tried everything mentioned on this thread.

     

    I wonder why Apple hasn't fixed this? So frustrating!

    EXIT YOUR CAMERA APS, MAKE SURE YOU ARE CONNECTED TO WIFI.

     

    Just worked for me without resetting anything....

     

     

    When you enable Photo Stream on your devices, all new photos you take or import to those devices will be automatically added to your Photo Stream.

    On an iOS device, new photos you take will be automatically uploaded to your Photo Stream when you leave the Camera app and are connected to Wi-Fi. Note: Photo Stream does not push photos over cellular connections.

    Thread title is "Photostream is not syncing on my Windows 7 PC". Windows 7 is not an iOS device.

    I have the exact same issue and this "solution" works on my computer:

     

    1. Close the iCloud control panel.

    2. Open the task manager and end all Apple and iCloud processes.

    3. Reopen the iCloud control panel. The photos in my iPhone photostream now automatically downloads to my dowload folder (which I had to create myself) on my PC.

     

    However, if I take new photos that are placed in my iPhone photo stream, they don't download to my PC unless I perform step 1 to 3 all over again. Kind of disturbing I must say...

    I'm having the same problem on my 64 bit Windows 7 machine.

     

    It's amazing that this thread has gone on for 7 pages, and nobody from Apple can be bothered to post a solution on here.
