Will Dropbox no longer run on a windows server 2003

Will Dropbox no longer run on a windows server 2003

We have been running Dropbox for several years on a Windows Server 2003.

Today, it no longer runs and I get the message that my os (w2003 server) is not supported.

I know Dropbox did not officially support w2003 server, however, has changes been to the application to explicitly not support w2003 server?

Its almost certainly related to the end of Windows XP support - which doesn't surprise me, since they are basically the same era OS.

if so, it would have been nice with a fair warning.

I just experienced the same things, and TBH it's a real pain.

Can anyone from Dropbox confirm that 2003 is no longer supported since they have no windows server versions listed under system requirements?  A little warning would have also been nice.

2003 hasn't ever been officially supported, and has been killed off with Windows XP.
