1) Web client
The web client service need to be installed, details are further down below. Please note by default it is not installed on Server 2016 or 2019.
2) Internet Zone settings
The following zones are automatically adjusted on installation. However when the machine is in a domain type environment where GPOs are mostly likely in place controlling such settings, then these will need to be added to the policy to avoid them being overwritten on the next policy update. For users in NON domain workgroup environments then this is automatically adjusted on installation. The requirements for the zone settings are as follows:
- Trusted Zone
- For GPO settings
- Local Intranet Zone = 1
- Trusted Zone = 2

4) Firewall / Proxy / Filtering
5) .NET version 4.8 or above
For Cloud Drive Mapper to successfully work, at least Framework .NET 4.8 must be installed.
If you do not already have this installed it can be accessed via a Windows Update. NET Framework should be selected from the optional downloads to install the latest version.
Or alternatively, you can use this URL: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/5a4x27ek(v=vs.110).aspx
If you’re not too sure which .NET Framework you’re currently running, follow the steps below.
How to check the .NET version
Run the following query as a command line :-
reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full" /v Version
Or press ‘Windows+R’ on your desktop or alternately click start and chose the option ‘Run’.
In the run box, type Regedit.exe to open your registry editor.
Once open, go to the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full
If that location does not exist, you don’t have .NET Framework 4.6 or later.
Check for a DWORD value named Release. The existence of the Release DWORD indicates that the .NET Framework 4.5 or newer has been installed on that computer.
The value of the Release DWORD indicates which version of the .NET Framework is installed.
WebClient service (Server 2012,16,19)
