I am trying to download an app but it says there is not enough storage even though I have a lot of free space on one drive

Hi I am trying to download a very large app. I do not have anywhere near enough space on my computer but have lots of space on my onedrive. I have tried the install process with the filepath leading to my local onedrive folder. This brings up an error saying there is not enough space and shows me the remaining available space on my hard drive.

Is there a way I can download straight onto one drive?

is there a way to download straight onto the cloud (online version)?

Thanks for your help!

    Sorry, but that isn't possible. Simplest solution may be to buy a USB stick.
