Thanks for responding.  I decided to uninstall the application and reinstall it from the dropbox website.  It's loading OK now.

Hi @drgilson; welcome to our Community!

 

I'm sorry to hear you're getting an error when trying to start the desktop app on your computer and I'd like to look into this for you. 

 

There should be a blue hyperlink within the error message pop-up you get so can you click on it and forward me the whole error log so I can get a visual too? 

 

Thanks!

Thanks for keeping me in the loop @drgilson.

 

I'm glad to hear that re-installing the desktop app did the trick for you.

 

Have a lovely weekend and see you around the Community!
