I too am getting the error 2 when installing and have tried all of the solutions that I have found in the community.
Is the only option to move to something else? I have used dropbox for several years but now find myself at a loss.
I do not want to clean install windows. Dropbox was working fine until I got the message that I was using an old version and to update.
In the same boat here. I moved to Google Drive, but I find the app slower to sync. It's quite a disappointment.
Hey everyone, sorry to hear that you're still having trouble with this.
If you have, you can also have a look at this article, in case it provides any further insight that could potentially help.
As @Daphne, also previously mentioned, if you still receive the error 2 message after trying out all these steps, make sure that you don't have any third party apps that could be blocking the installation, like an antivirus.
Thanks for letting me know, @Jdyercdp.
Just to make sure that we cover as much troubleshooting as possible, could you also make sure that your computer meets the minimum requirements to run the desktop app?
Yes, my computer meets the minimum requirements. Please note that Dropbox was running fine on my machine until the last Dropbox update. BTW ... I stopped Windows Update from loading feature updates at version 1809, after 1903 broke my computer.
