I have no trouble accessing iCloud.com but I am unable to access iCloud through the Windows Control Panel program. I keep getting the message, "Couldn't sign in because of a server error." I've tried using the @me.com address that works on iCloud.com as well as my regular Apple ID, and both return the same error.
It takes about a minute for that message to display, so I suspected a problem with my firewall or router, so I turned off all antivirus and firewalls but still no luck.
Is there something I'm missing? Do I need to forward ports on my router to get it to work?
Thanks for your help!
ETA: I just tried something else - I used my firewall to shut down incoming or outgoing internet access and I get the same message after about a minute. That reinforces my thought that somehow, my computer or network is blocking communications with the iCloud server.
Really? That's kind of surprising. Here's a video from youtube that shows someone using it on Windows (it appears to be a previous beta, this latest one is 0.9.2), so I just assumed the beta was working for dev accounts on mac and windows.
Hi - ever get this figured out? I'm not a dev and don't have any dev accounts, but have an individual account I just started with today. I've tried with two different Apple ID's in two different locations and get this error every time, exactly as the OP describes. Looks like this:
