My dropbox on Win 10 stopped working with the above mentioned message. I tried to do complete offline reinstall but the installer told me that it could not start. I then removed all DropBox Folders on my computer (Except for the dropbox content) and just the same happens.

 

Anyone has any idea how to proceed?

 

Thanks

Hi @RDoerrer, welcome aboard our Community!

Let's see what we can do about this.

It sounds like a Windows error message, but can you please send me a screenshot of it, so we can see where it's coming from? 

Thanks!
