2. When I loaded Calibre into Skydrive, I could open it just fine on my laptop, but when I try it on the desktop, the Task Manager shows the process has started to run and then it just disappears. Is it possible to use cloud storage with Calibre in this manner? I only switched because I kept forgetting my USB drive at home/work.

Thanks guys!

BTW, I run Windows 7 Ultimate on all machines.
I use calibre portable and dropbox the same way you are describing. But I have dropbox folder on both my computer at C: drive. If you can do something similar with skydrive that should solve your problem.
