Hello, suddenly my desktop application could not open anymore. I get a message "Windows cannot find x86...dropbox.exe". I decided to reinstall dropbox and the problem persists. I decided to uninstall dropbox and it will not let me. I manually tried to uninstall all the components, but I could not uninstall .dll file because it is used by other programs. I read similar threads, but I am not sure what the solution is. So to summarize:
-I have a pc and windows 10 pro and my dropbox desktop used to work just fine.
-Suddenly, I could not open it and I realized this because I added documents to a shared folder and collaborators told me they could not seen them.
-I tried to open the app and when I click on it nothing happens and when I force it to open (by right clicking) it says "Windows cannot find....x86... dropbox.exe".
-I tried to uninstall and I cannot.
-I tried to manually uninstall and I can delete everything except the .dll file.
I would greatly appreciate any help! Thank you in advance.
Everything was working fine yesterday and when i went to open dropbox today, on both my home computer and my laptop, I got the same message as the OP.
I have tried reinstalling to no avail and I have tried to uninstall using the dropbox uninstaller, the Programs and features uninstaller, and manullay doing it. I have more than triple checked all dropbox tasks have been ended but it still says a program is using something in dropbox.
I have tried it all on both my home computer and my laptop with no luck. They both worked fine yesterday.
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Hello Lusil, thank you for your response. Yes, I looked at the Task Manager and the only process that was there was a "Dropbox Service", which I ended. I was not able to uninstall dropbox. Basically, as I mentioned I cannot uninstall or reinstall dropbox. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
