I'm not sure what you are describing. You have to log in using the Drop Box desktop program as far as I know. You can't log in using a browser and then use the desk top program without logging in with that program.

I don't know why it is working forMike. It doesn't work here with XP and I
haven't heard anything indicating that it works in general. Perhaps there
is something about Mike's machine that isn't standard.

I can't believe Drop box still works for xp. I'm glad it still does for
those who use it. My xp box died a long time ago! My very first xp box quit
serving me when I started using jaws 11. It couldn’t handle it. I had to
give it to a sighted user. Yes, with it I had drop box. I was going into
chat rooms that used tc conference. The second box I got from a friend. it
died shortly after I got my 7 box witch I still have. I'm happy with 7. If
I get or end up with ten so be it.

Lino, there's no need to take that sort of tone, especially when you're

It is possible to adjust Windows XP so that it gets updates intended for
Point
of Sale (POS) terminals, and these continue until April 9th, 2019.

You may not wish to continue using Windows XP yourself, but please don't
be so
abusive (or misinformed) towards those who do, and who know what they're
doing
to keep it going.

2014. Its high time you all get off the XP trainwreck. Dropbox did
indeed end their support. Fanagle it to work to your little hearts
content.

It obviously detects the operating system. They have sent out many
messages from well over a month ago warning people about this and it
did actually last an extra day. I see now they are claiming that its a
security issue with xp as its not been updated for over two years,
however many of us do have xp updates till 2019, and really should
not be all shoved together with the great unwashed as it seems xp
users are seen these days.

Hi,

the update of Dropbox is pushed by one or more entries in scheduled
tasks. So it would be possible to stop the Dropbox client to update
itself. But as I wrote in my last mail - it didn't matter. Dropbox
didn't let you in with an old version of the client.

Yours sincerely

Arno
