Upon computer startup, I get the following message:
The code execution cannot proceed because C:\Program Files (x86)\Dropbox\Client\78.4.119\MSVCP140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
My goal is to get Dropbox up and running again.
The dll exists in the above path. I tried to uninstall from Programs and features and by using C:\Program Files (x86)\Dropbox\Client\DropboxUninstaller.exe and all uninstall methods fail. I followed the instructions in this article with no success:
I moved all three MSVCP140.dll related file names (...140.dll, 140_1.dll, 140_2.dll) to a safe folder and did the offline install again (fresh DLLs had been installed). No joy. I renamed the "Dropbox" registry entry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ to "Dropbox_old", restarted and same error message (plus a new Dropbox registry entry).
My old Dropbox folder is still there but none of my files are synced.
So I cannot uninstall, and an install update or offline install does not resolve the problem. What should I do? I am getting close to attempting a manual uninstall by deleting install files and registry entries. Thanks, Ben
