Re: dropbox with office 2016 and Win 10

Helpful | Level 6

Thanks Andrew. Very nice tool indeed.

My biggest issue with Dropbox integration is not the places. It's bad enough that Dropbox doesn't get their act together on such a simple thing. But the bigger deal for me is the ability to save files in Dropbox, and be able to (potentially) edit concurrently with my co-workers. One can do this with OneDrive/Sharepoint, but not with Dropbox. My company is soon going to move off of Dropbox. We are moving to ownCloud before the end of the year, which we can host ourselves (a lot cheaper) and has all the value we get from Dropbox. If Dropbox were to add the concurrent add, it would suddenly be worth the money and we would be back within a couple of days.

Hi everyone, i dont know if someone have the problem yet, trying to run the bat in WINDOWS 10, and OFFICE 2016, to begin this is not like the service the ONEDRIVE, why? simple because the the onedrive is a CLOUD service, this means that if you doesnt have onedrive in your pc, you can save/open files that you have in onedrive. To continue, you can get DROPBOX with a "site" or location like onedrive, only if you have DROPBOX in your PC. This bat just "PIN" the dropbox in the menu, and get de icon. Before say that is just that simple to copy paste in a note and "save as"  and the extension is .bat for example: finallythesolution.BAT 

just copypaste

This isn´t my code (or not all, is the code of the bat that is sharing, and other one, that i cant remember where is the source, excuse me for that) i just only take the part that can run in windows 10, and jump the verificacion of OS.
