(Archived) Evernote Desktop won't sync on Windows 8 pt 2


Recommended Posts

I have been using Windows 8 for a while and didn't have any issues until today - I accepted the latest update this morning and now syncing fails. Symptoms are similar to the ones described in this thread. i.e. activity log shows:

08:10:22 [5204] 0% Authenticating user "[MYUSER]"

08:11:22 [5204] 0% Can't send HTTP request, error: INTERNET_TIMEOUT

08:11:22 [5204] 0% Session terminated abnormally, elapsed time: 59s

08:11:22 [5204] 0% * 0s (0%) spent in EDAM RPC

Well, at least I know I am not mad!!! This made me try out OneNote, tch tch. (Its actually quite good). Nonetheless, I am still waiting for this problem to be resolved. BTW tech support has been useless for weeks now for me, its a dev issue......

Same issue here with Windows 8. Tech support basically threw up their hands and said it was something to do with the OS but had no suggestions for a fix. I basically can't use Evernote on my laptop at this point.

I am surprised by how little information there is  to be found on 'slow sync with Windows 8' to be found.


I use Evernote on Macs, iOS, and Android devices with no sync problem.


On a new Windows 8 PC Evernote is showing 700+ notes whereas I have 6000+.


There is no sign of activity after pressing sync.


I have de- and re-installed the latest version, and the results are as before.






After more investigation there IS some activity, and my note count has slowly risen to 1000+.
