I am experiencing exactly the same problem of crashing install error 2 failure.

Found this fix method 3 worked for me. Does not affect your dropbox folder
contents. Use Windows Registry Editor to delete relevant dropbox system key settings and then perform a clean advanced reinstall of Dropbox. All OK.

Did the above suggestion work for you as well, @XAVI33
