Hello, after updating to this version, the Dropbox application no longer starts. The problem occurs on several computers with Windows 10 Pro 22h2 without any Dropbox account being logged in. Every time I reinstall the previous version of Dropbox, everything works fine until the automatic update to 179.4.4917 takes place.

I have just spent 2 hours trying to resolve this with my client!


I can confirm that this release causes the app to not open. No GUI at all just the Dropbox service.


I managed to find an older version which helped short term until the update forced itself in and broke the app again. 


Please sort this ASAP.

Just autoupdated to 179.4.4919 but there's a creepy Beta on the client - I did not opt for the beta releases.

It seems this version is completly unstable and not working.

even using the the offiline installer is not solving the problem.

It will automatically update to this version and crashes.


Please bug fix ASAP

Since 70 hours have already passed since the notification, but Dropbox support has not yet offered any solution, I managed to temporarily solve the problem by installing the beta version 180.3.471, until another stable version appears to fix this problem.

Hi all, thanks for your reports on this. 


I just wanted to mention that our team is looking into this and, for now, you can manually reinstall the 178 version of the desktop app without being updated to the 179 version automatically. 


I hope this helps! 

Need more support?
