SkyDrive: One Computer Can Map, the Other Can't

I’ve decided — somewhat belatedly — to store some of my documents on Microsoft’s SkyDrive* so that I can share them between computers. The process of mapping SD/OD/whatever to a drive letter appears straightforward enough (although there seem to be an infinite number of ways to format the link), and indeed it worked fine on my laptop; but when I tried it on the desktop I was told that Windows couldn’t access the specified address. Both computers are running Win 7 Pro, and are at the same patch level. As far as I can tell, the main difference is that I had to install Windows Live Essentials on the desktop in order to create the online ID.

For the record, these are the addresses I’ve tried (the first being the one that worked on the laptop):[ul]

But that’s not the way I want to use the feature.

As always, any thoughts/insights/advice would/will be greatly appreciated.
