Re: To all xp users who were running dropbox

And what happens when you close the program and run it again or when you do the same thing by rebooting? 
 
Perhaps there is a bugg in the Drop Box system that allows you to use the program in this way but it is not what is intended.  I received two messages before the termination date telling me that the program can't be used and you can't log in using the program itself.  If you can do so using the procedure you gave, that would be useful to know.  But I doubt it is just a one time procedure.  I suspect you have to do so every time you close and reopen the program or every time you do the equivalent by rebooting.

Yes, it takes you to exactly the same web page you can go to if you go
directly to the site itself by opening your browser and going there
directly.  You are logging into use Drop Box with your browser.  You are not
using the Drop Box desktop program.  All you are doing is using control g to
have the program run your default browser and open the login page.  If you
look in the system tray, you will see that the program says starting and it
never progresses.  You can't use the desktop program to access Send Space
other than to have it open the login page in your browser and that you can
do directly in your browser.

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.
