Re: Stable Build 8.4.20

I haven't been able to open the Dropbox program since 8.4.19 came out, and when I try to install this one using either installer, I get "The installer encountered error 2". Only solution seems to be reinstalling 7.4.30 daily (can't stop it updating). A fix would be appreciated!

Re: Stable Build 8.4.20

Hi.

I have just noticed that my dropbox suddenly stopped working  I am not sure when this build came out but it doesn't work on my W7 Ent. I says its 8.4.20.

I click on dropbox and it wont execute and dies

I tired to remove via Programs and Features and it says "Dropbox Unable to uninstall"

I tried to re-install on the top via dropbox website and get error 2

I tried to install the offline version from dropbox website and same issue.

No windows updates/No firewall changes / Have turned off security/firewall

Please let me know if you have any resolutions.

Thanks

Al

Re: Stable Build 8.4.20

Cannot reinstall or update due to error 2. Cannot uninstall due to another version. Only installing the 7.4.30 version works, and only for a few minutes or hours until it is updated or something.

Re: Stable Build 8.4.20

Same Issue than @Eleanor and @Alastair

I have error code 2 when trying to install this update and my Dropbox doesn't launch since version 8.4.19.

Only solution for now: install old version 7.4.30 and disable autoupdate services. But Dropbox find someway to autoinstall new version daily...

I'm on Windows 7 x64

Please FIX it.

Sounds familiar - have tried blocking update with firewall and UAC. See how long that holds.
Anyone know what is causing these problems??

Re: Stable Build 8.4.20

Experiencing the same issue and symptoms as @Philip, @doz, @Eleanor, @Alastair, and @John

My workaround was to install the beta build 9.3.44 (https://www.dropboxforum.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/210645026-Beta-Build-9-3-44). This isn't a great solution, but got the files syncing for now.
