Dropbox won't open - Windows7

Dropbox won't open - Windows7

cunningoli
Explorer | Level 3

I noticed Dropbox had stopped sync'ing late November, so un-installed it, then reinstalled.

 

It installs successfully.

 

I double click on Dropbox to load and nothing happens. tried for hours to get it to work. IT does work on my mobile.

 

Tried installing as administrator, deleting all references to dropbox, un-installing then rebooting, turning McAfee off, deleting sync'd computers....

 

Can see the Dropbox proces start in task manager, then disappear.

 

Any help much appreciated.

Hello there!

Have you tried downloaded from this webpage on our website, the newest version od Dropbox Desktop application?

The newest versions have new each new version includes a number of key updates so it’s important that you run the latest version whenever possible 😉

Hi, downloading from link, installs successfully. Whe ndouble click on icon to load it doesn't open.

 

Also when I check favourites in Windows Explorer, there is no folder for Dropbox. IT has worked perfectly for a number of years, until end of Nov. Now I can't get it to install.
