Hey @suenj2

 

I understand! Because you've already done some troubleshooting on your own, I'd recommend raising a ticket with our team at this point, so that we check your configuration and get back in touch with more advice (specific to your account). Once you do, please let me know a ticket ID in your reply here, so that I look it up on my end.

 

(Note: Please keep in mind that once you submit a ticket, you should be able to see your ticket number in the email heading that you receive soon after you "Submit" it, it should be a 7 digit number.)
 
Thanks in advance for your cooperation!

Re: Installer Error 2

Same. This is happening on a computer that Dropbox has worked on for years. This is NOT my computer's problem. Really need a fix (you guys need to check your installer because it's the problem). 

 

I have followed every single "guide" or instruction in this and many other threads and nothing works, still getting Error 2. Please fix your software instead of asking us to run through yet one more guide or checklist.

Re: eRe: Error 2 when installing

i've reply your message by mail, but I'm not sure if you get it...

I've tried once again to install the app, but I've failed again!.... I did everything, i even consulted in other forums, but it seems that there is no solution for this error 2 on my computer.

And now I even have problems for uninstalling it.

You are my last hope! jeje ....so I'm looking fordward to make this terrible "error 2" go away.

Re: eRe: Error 2 when installing

Hey @coyoyo87please let me know a ticket ID to reference in your reply, so that I look it up internally and make sure it's promptly reviewed. 

 

Also, I 've moved your reply here to see whether trying to re-install in safe mode helps you resolve that. 

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
