Default Rotten Apple?

Son has sent me a message to subscribe to his photo album while he is on
holiday.

I click on the subscribe link, and it wants my Apple ID. To get an Apple
ID, it appears I have to have an iSomething. I don't.

Is there any way of getting an Apple ID, or some way round this?

All the rest of the family just use Windows/Android.

You can sign up for an apple ID without needing any iTat. Handy for when
apple types send you documents in "pages" format and you need to
convert them, to something the rest of the world can make use of.

Thanks, Andy!

But during the process, everything Windows seemed to conspire against me
with updates.
Then tea was declared.
I thought I had confirmed the Apple ID, allowed the W10, AV, Browser
and VMWare updates to happen, then it came back with a login screen.

On entering the email and password, it said that I have to use the login
with an iOS or OSx device to set it up before using the iCloud login for
Windows.

I've given up for tonight, but will start again tomorrow.

I have an I device but because its got face ID you are supposed to only need
the apple ID only once, however in recent days every time I want to download
an app it wants the id and pass code, which of course I hid in a very safe
place under a file name I've forgotten. Bah humbug.
I think Apple id is only for those using apple stuff. As Itunes is on pc
though I'm not sure if you can grease their palm with silver to get access
to the Icloud.

I too have tried this but gave up at this point. Even if you can get it
working now, at some future point it is bound to stop working due to
some improvement either at Apple or Windows. Then you have to spend
another few hours finding out how to get it working again. Life's too
short.

Here is where I have got to:

My emails, including the one from my son, come in via Turnpike on a
virtual 32-bit W7 machine. In trying to set up the Apple ID, I used
Firefox in the VM.

On checking today, it appears I have registered an Apple ID and today,
unlike last night, I can get to the management screen.

I then tried logging in and going to "Manage" in the 64-bit W10 host
machine. This appears to have worked.

When I try to look at his photo album in either OS, I get the following
message:
"iCloud Photo Sharing is not available for this device".

I think I'll give up unless anyone can suggest a magic way forward.

Bill. I should give up.
You are clearly too stupid to use a computer.

You are probably right.

When we had a computer related business, my big strength was in the
testing, as I excelled at making stupid mistakes that would uncover
hidden obscure bugs that the software writers had missed.

I was moderately good then with the diagnostics in analysing whereabouts
the problems were.

But, "iCloud Photo Sharing is not available for this device" isn't
exactly a helpful message.

I'm trying one last pass through the various instructions and have
reached the stage where a restart is called for, so I'll post this and
disappear.
