iCloud PhotoSync not working on Windows PC

Today I recognized that my PhotoStreams don’t sync to my Windows PC.
It looks like it stopped working a while ago, after some research possibly after an update (maybe at the version jump from 2.x to 3.x).

So this is what I’ve done to fix this issue:

  1. Opened the iCloud Control Center
  2. Signed out of iCloud (in the iCloud Control Center)
  3. Closed the iCloud Control Center (otherwise the next step isn’t possible, because it locks the folder)
  4. Renamed the folder where the PhotoStream stored the pics
  5. Signed in to iCloud (in the iCloud Control Center)
  6. Setup everything as needed (sync options)

That’s it, PhotoStream syncs again!
