Dropbox says a program is online only, even though it is on my computer.

Why does dropbox say a .exe is online only? It tells me to move it to a dropbox folder, which I have done. Then I can execute it. But the next time I boot it still complains. What can I do about this?

Hi @Eddy Q.; happy Friday!

I'll be glad to look into this for you if you'd shared a screenshot of the exact error message you get so please send me one here in your next reply.

While at it, could you clarify if you're indeed trying to run an executable file from within your Dropbox folder? 

Thanks!
