Re: Error 2 when installing dropbox

Hey Artos,
I followed Rizaldo I. advice on changing the folder name and worked out for me after multiple attempts trying other things. Hope it works for you.
"
1) Remove (Uncheck) Dropbox Auto Start during Windows Start in Dropbox Preference =>
2) Exit Dropbox then Restart PC =>
3) Freaking rename the Old "Client" folder to "Client_14.4.19" (the version I was using) =>
4) Rename the latest updated folder which is Client_14.4.19 to "Client" in my case ===>
5) Rechecked Start Dropbox at Windows Startup
6) Then VOILA! CASE SOLVED... "

Re: Error 2 when installing dropbox

Its a new installation, there is nothing to "uncheck" or "exit" or "rename"... it just doesn't install and I have done everything they said it could work here...

Re: Error 2 when installing dropbox

Sorry forgot to mention that I had installed a older version of dropbox 3.14.4 and renamed those client files.

Here's the link to it: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Desktop-client-builds/Release-Candidate-3-14-4/m-p/133085#M1686

Well, installing the version in your link also produces "Error 2"...
