Current Dropbox warnings / errors

Since I am getting quite a few mails every day asking about the current dropbox warnings, I want to clarify the situation.

There are currently two cases:
1. You already setup DropboxPortableAHK previously:
Dropbox starts up just fine but displays a warning that says you are using an outdated version and you must update to a newer version by the end of March to continue using Dropbox.

You don’t have to do anything here, just be patient and wait until everything works without issues again.

2. You start a fresh setup of DropboxPortableAHK:
At the end of the setup, Dropbox will not allow you to sign in to your account, because you are using an outdated version.

You are out of luck here. It currently just does not work. Please wait until I release a new version that works again.

I am working on a solution for both issues and will publish a new version when I am ready. I hope to finish it until Dropbox pulls the plug for the current version entirely, but I can’t make any promises.

Also, I’d like to remind you that DropboxPortableAHK comes free of charge and I am working on it in my spare time, which is currently very limited.
So please consider a donation. Even if it is a small one, everything helps.
A big thanks to all of you who did donate in the past, you are awesome ­čÖé

Update (22.03.2016): Dropbox broke all setups today. I try to have the new version ready until next week.

  1. Hi !

    Danke f├╝r Deinen Post zu den Warnungen Ende M├Ąrz, und hier nochmals vielen herzlichen Dank f├╝r Deine tolle Arbeit bisher!
    Keep it coming!

    GLG, Alex

  2. I donated a littke amount because I can’t make more today. I hope not to be the only one to encourage you and to thank yourself. Thank you for your work !

  3. Dropbox hat auch bei mir zwangsweise vor 2 Wochen geupdatet. Somit habe ich neben DropboxPortable seitdem auch eine von mir gleich wieder deaktivierte Dropbox 3.14.7 Instanz installiert.

    DropboxPortable dagegen geht leider seit heute bei mir nicht mehr, da trotz aktivierten AutoUpdate noch Dropbox 3.8.8 innerhalb von DropboxPortable l├Ąuft. Um Deine Arbeit zu unterst├╝tzen, habe ich Dir eben eine Spende ├╝berweisen.

    Let`s rock,

  4. Moin,

    Und vielen Dank f├╝r deine tolle Arbeit!
    Eine kleine Spende als Dankesch├Ân ├╝berwiesen. Nicht viel, aber immerhin ein kleines Dankesch├Ân.

    Ich hoffe, du findest eine L├Âsung.

  5. Love your app; and can’t wait for the update to fix the issue. In the mean time, I donated a small amount (I’m not made of money, after all).

    Liebe Ihre app; und kann nicht f├╝r das Update warten, um das Problem zu beheben. In der Zwischenzeit, spendete ich eine kleine Menge (ich bin nicht Geld gemacht, nachdem alle).

  6. The beta version doesn’t work. It says that my dropbox version is outdated when trying to connect my account, and close.

    • You are already aware of the problem (just read the article) Thanks for your work. I hope this problem will be solved soon, I know you work hard.

  7. Hallo,
    danke f├╝r DropboxPortableAHK.
    Gibt es inzwischen eine L├Âsung?
    Bekomme eine Warnung, dass ich nur noch 6 Tage nutzen kann
