"Waiting to be linked to a Dropbox account"

New member | Level 1

I am logged into Dropbox on the Internet and I've tried to download the DMG file to have Dropbox on my desktop. I have the folder in my menu bar at the top, but it is grey instead of blue. When I tough the grey folder, the first row says "Waiting to be linked to a Dropbox account." In Preferences/Account it says "this computer is not linked to an account."

How can I link my account to my Dropbox Desktop client?

This link hasn't helped me solve the problem. In settings/security, it says my MacBook is linked, but I still have a grey folder in the Menu tray.
