Beta v1.6.9

During the last weeks, DropboxPortableAHK was incompatible with the current Dropbox version, which prompted many of its users to write comments on the last blog post on how they use DropboxPortableAHK and how it helps them in their daily life. This encouraged me to work on DropboxPortableAHK again and today, two years after the last official release, there is now a new version available (beta version v1.6.9), which brings support for Dropbox versions greater than 72.4.136. Additionally, you can pass ‘-disable-shortcuts’ to DropboxPortableAHK.exe in case you start it automatically in the background and want to prevent the usual shortcuts (like pressing Shift to open the settings) from interfering with the startup.

It would be great if some of you’d consider sending a donation, especially those that use DropboxPortableAHK for work.
The new version can be downloaded from the Download page and will be rolled out through the auto update of DropboxPortableAHK.
After the update, you probably have to re-run through the Dropbox setup to correctly link it to your account again.

  1. I can’t thank you enough for this! Your improvements transform Dropbox from decent software into fantastic software. Now Dropbox works for the user the way it should. I appreciate your work greatly.

  2. Hi

    It works just wonderfully, except for one tiny detail. I switch between ordinary dropbox (by doing “Exit Dropbox”) and DropboxPortableAHK. But every time I do this, DPAHK belives my machine is a new client. So after some days I get an error that I’ve utilized all my three clients and need to delete some.

    Also, this means DPAHK does a full 60000+ files sync on start (which takes quite some time).

    Keep up the good work. I’ve donated 🙂


    • This should not be the case, DropboxPortableAHK should keep your files indexed without issues. Please get in touch with me through the Contact page so that we can figure out what’s going wrong for you.

  3. Thank you! Could you just confirm it works on Windows 7? Because the former version, after going to 70.x or so, would not work on 7 (folder would remain on default as i recall), worked fine on 10 which i hate but had to use just for this up to now..!

    • Which config files are you talking about? If in doubt, you can simply delete the entire `.dbfiles` folder and set up DropboxPortableAHK from scratch. This will involve reindexing your whole Dropbox though, which might take a bit depending on the amount of files that you have.

    • These lines you have to fix:

      7z e .update\DropboxOfflineInstaller.exe -o.update DropboxClientInstaller.exe.* | FIND “Extracting archive:”
      7z x .update\DropboxClientInstaller.exe.* -o.update | FIND “Extracting archive:”

      now its works again. Thanks
