Auto-updates: In progress
I have just installed the latest version of Dropbox (V43.4.49) on Windows 7 Professional SP1 (32-bit) and the 'Start Dropbox on system startup' option is missing from preferences.
The stable builds are for the Desktop client, which is regularly updated with many improvements and fixes.
A beta build is an early release feature that is subject to these additional terms.
