Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a Windows 8.1-based device.

  • You join the device to a domain.

  • The password synchronization feature under the OneDrive Sync settings is enabled for the device.

  • You switch networks on the device. For example, you switch the device between Wi-Fi and LAN networks.

In this scenario, a User Account Control (UAC) dialog box appears unexpectedly.


To resolve this issue, install the November 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
