dllhost.exe application error when viewing local Dropbox folder

dllhost.exe application error when viewing local Dropbox folder

Hi all,

I recently reinstalled Windows due to recurring error when viewing files in my Dropbox folder. It's an application error - dllhost.exe - The instruction at 0x0000FFECEE6F8DA referenced memory at 0x0000000000002CEB. The memory could not be read.

I assumed it was an issue with Windows, but with a fresh install it's still doing it. As soon as I open the Dropbox folder on my PC and view files it happens and will do so repeatedly. Any ideas about what could be wrong? I've got 60% space left in my account.

Hey there @antony81, thanks for reaching out to us!

From what you've mentioned of the error message that you're getting, it seems that the error is actually to do with your OS rather than Dropbox.

The dllhost.exe is a Windows operating system file that helps the File Explorer to function, which might be why you see this trying to access the local Dropbox folder.

This error can be caused in a few different ways, so I'd suggest contacting Microsoft Support for further assistance with this.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions!
