I'm having an issue with installing the desktop app as it keeps downloading the S mode. Any ideas?

Helpful | Level 5

I had to replace my harddrive so I'm reinstalling dropbox. It keeps downloading in S mode, although my Windows 10 is set for home, and I have never used S mode on this PC. Because of the S mode I can't get my files added to quick access menu etc...An ideas how to fix? I keep installing and uninstalling without any success.

Hey there @BB2019 - sorry to hear about this.

Can you please try our desktop app's offline installer directly and let me know if you're still having this issue?

You'll be able to find our most recent stable version of the app within the page I'm linking below - please give it a go and let me know the results!

Got it working. PC was set up to only download from the MS store...so I was constantly getting the S version. Once I tuned that off it downloaded normal and allowed me to add finish setting it up properly.
