Shockwave error running BGE from OneDrive on Surface Pro 3

Hello,
I've done all of my BGE work on my desktop computer. Recently I bought a surface pro 3 and would like to use BGE on the bus to work.

However, when I try to run BGE from my synced OneDrive folder, I get an error saying I need to install Shockwave 10 player. After installing the player I still get the same error.

I'm blocked from using BGE now on my Surface. I want to keep using OneDrive so my files are in sync no matter where I go.

Any ideas how to fix this? I'm not running from a zip file like another forum post mentioned.

Looks like you've got a couple of things going on here, the Surface Pro, and OneDrive. It would be good to isolate which is the cause of the problem. Does BGE work OK on your desktop PC using OneDrive?

Is there anything unusual going on with OneDrive insofar as case-sensitivity in filenames? I mention this because someone once ran my software on a hard drive formatted such that it was case-sensitive, and he had a similar issue until he changed the capitalization of the "Xtras" folder (which coincidentally is where BGE stores it's local copy of Shockwave).

Hi,
Figured out my issue. I had my OneDrive folder sync'ed, but I hadn't checked the box "Make all files available when this PC isn't connected to the internet"

Thanks
