Just tried reinstalling 3.03. The program installs but then when it goes to the Setup window I get an error message saying that I have no internet connection and to computer is offline (clearly it isn't since I'm posting from it now"). Click the "retry" button but to no avail. This is on a PC currently running windows 8.1.
Also the share dropbox link by right clicking disappeared about a week ago.
My mac and mobile devices are still fine.
In case there are any help for users in Mainland China.
I use Mac, and none of the solutions above helped me.
But finally when I chose "Manual" in the proxies settings, changed the proxies type to "SOCK 5"(the type of VPN I used) and entered the host numbers, it worked!
Just solved my problem in case anyone else is running into it. Pretty simple of course. The McAfee firewall was preventing me from completing the setup. Turned off the firewall for a couple of minutes and ran through setup.
Hi, I have a question For Ben, How did you succeed to disabled your proxy settings if you can connect ? I can change it but it doen't keep the data when I update… Thanks a lot
I had the same problem as Morgan and Ben. I first tried to disable Windows firewall and antivirus, that didn't work. Then I tried configuring "Proxies" to "No Proxy", and that solved the problem.
