While we have had issues with OneDrive in the past, as long as your launche ris up to date (2021.9) I would have thought it would work now.

It is working as designed that running eu4.exe doesn't run the launcher, since that is a separate application that can only be run from Steam.

What if you set it to run as Windows Admin all the time, then run the game from Steam?

Exit the Steam app entirely, then run steam.exe as the WIndows Admin user (just as you did with eu4.exe before). Then run the game from the PLAY button in Steam.

OneDrive is active and all files successfully synced (with a green tick in File Explorer)?

What launcher version do you see? Current is 2021.9
