Cannot install dropbox on Windows 7 32bit

Cannot install dropbox on Windows 7 32bit

Hello

 

I try install dropbox on my old PC which run windows 7 32 bit.

Both online and offline installer gave me the same result, there are 2 dialog boxes ask me to run the installer then ask me to make change on hard drive and then nothing happen. The desktop app won't install at all.

 

I try turn off windows firewall and Anti-virus but still won't work.

 

I had my laptop which run windows 10 on the same WIFI and there is no problem at all.

 

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Thanks for replying back @Pongpisut!

Keep in mind that Windows 7 needs the security update KB3033929 for the Dropbox desktop app to work properly.

Can I ask if your device has been updated?

Hello Lori,

 

Thank for the guideline, however I still got the same result.

The dialog box ask to run and ask to allow to make change on HDD and then nothing.

 

Look forward for the next step.
