Unable to Open Books After Windows 8.1 Reinstall

I maintain my library in a OneDrive folder. I have had Calibre installed on a MacBook Pro and a Windows 8.1 machine, both pointed to the OneDrive folder. All has been stable for some time. Recently, however, I had to reinstall Windows 8.1 on the Windows machine. After the reinstall I deleted any lingering Calibre settings from the machine (e.g., in App Data). I then did a fresh Calibre install on the Windows machine and ran through setup pointing the new installation to the OneDrive folder. It completed and lists all the books, but I can't access any of them. Whenever I click on a title, I get an error message with the details below. Everything continues to work fine on the MacBook. I'd be very grateful for any suggestions on how to remedy the problem. I can access the OneDrive folder and open the files it contains on the Windows machine--just not via Calibre. All books are DRM-free.

Here are the error details reported by Calibre:

calibre 2.28 [64bit] isfrozen: True is64bit: True

It is in the FAQ

NAS/Cloud drives are not supported.

Now you know why

Copy the backup (onedrive) Library to a local disk and see if you scraped by.

SYNC must always be OFF on the Library when Calibre is in use. (cue 3 stooges theme)

Thanks very much. I think I have now resolved this problem. I realized that after reinstalling Windows 8.1, I had failed to make the contents of the OneDrive folder where the books are stored available off line--i.e., on the hard drive of the Windows laptop. Once I made that adjustment, I was able to redirect Calibre to the OneDrive folder and the functionality I'd had before was restored. Thanks again.
