Dropbox closes immediately after opening; still runs in background

Dropbox closes immediately after opening; still runs in background

I've tried installing/uninstalling/reinstalling Dropbox on my Windows 10 laptop about 3 times now, to no avail. I simply cannot open the application - it flashes a small window on screen when I try to, then closes immediately. I also get a greyed-out version of the Dropbox emblem on my taskbar. No error messages have been displayed either. Anyone else have a similar issue, or a fix?

 

Edit: Repaired Windows and it works now.

Yes, I actually tried that before making this post. The issue has since been resolved, as I noticed Windows 10 was doing some funny things, so I ran a sfc /scannow and reapired some things - and it also happened to allow Dropbox to work!

 

Thank you for trying to help!
