Hi,

This sounds annoying sorry this version is not launching for you!

Can you tell me a bit more about what's happening, this version just will not launch no matter what you try to do or will it only not launch at startup? Are you getting any error messages?

Thanks,
Fearg

Hi there GGN 5,

Thanks for getting back to us.

Can you try temporarily disabling your anti virus or security software and try again? It might be worth trying to use the offline version here:

If the Dropbox software continues to crash, would you mind writing in to support:

I have resolved the issue.
I installed Dropbox 13.4.21 and desactivated all automatic updates.
Now i can use Dropbox.

Hi Yanlare

how did you desactivated the automatic updates ?

 

I have reinstalled the V 13.4.21 in offline

I have blocked in the W7 firewall (in & out connections) this program :

%ProgramFiles%\Dropbox\Update\DropboxUpdate.exe

It seems to be another solution ?

Wait & see ...  only one hour passed ...

Thanks
