Update to v1.4.6.0

A new version has just been released. It brings you three features that were requested multiple times by users in the past.

The first are custom Dropbox icons (thanks to UomoMacchina for the icons). You can now set different Icons for each instance you run. This way you can easily identify, which of your used Dropbox accounts are currently syncing.

The next feature belongs to user applications. You can now decide if DropboxPortableAHK should wait with it’s further execution until the called user application has exited or if it should go on without waiting.

Additionally, you can now specify the language DropboxPortableAHK should use. This is helpful if you are using a localized version of Windows but want to use DropboxPortableAHK in another language.

Complete changelog:

    • You can bring up the configuration screen by pressing ‘Shift’ while starting DropboxPortableAHK or by passing the ‘-setup’ parameter on command line.

  1. The picture shows you should go to bed earlier! 😉
    Great new features you added! Especially the ability to select between different Dropbox icons will be handy in my case (work and home dropbox folder).

    Thank you.

  2. I thought Port Dropbox would update Dropbox. My Dropbox is still at 1.1.45 (port is

    How can I manually update the Dropbox files? (Windows 7)

  3. Hi! I’ve just started using DropboxPortableAHK in a encrypted partition of my hard disk (I’m using TrueCrypt). There was no previous installation of Dropbox. Configuration of DropboxPortableAHK was ok, Dropbox started running with the selected icon color, but after some time Dropbox was shown as being “upgraded”, the icon changed to light blue, the version in Dropbox icon name changed to a newer one and syncing and indexing started all over again. After that, the next time DropboxPortableAHK was open, an error message was shown warning “the Dropbox version is not supported”. I accepted downloading a supported version, but after some time everything happened again. I had unchecked Dropbox update during configuration of DropboxPortableAHK, but, judging by what I’ve just told, it probably made no difference. Please, could you help me solve that? I really liked DropboxPortableAHK and would be very happy being able to use it. It’s pretty intelligent. Thanks!

  4. Also, I’m guessing that the “update prevention” only stops Dropbox from being able to successfully update, but it will still try. Any work arounds for this? Like say, blocking its ability to check for an update when running the latest supported version.

    • There is no way to stop Dropbox from trying to update itself, except if someone would modify the Dropbox.exe using a hex editor or something similar.

  5. Actually, I have thought about it a bit longer.

    SyncAndGo could be quite powerful with some small additions.
    Like say, if its not configured to shutdown, etc. Then it would just keep the Portable icon up. Then it would be great to have some options in the right click menu for when it has finished syncing:
    Logoff windows
    Shutdown windows
    Reboot windows
    Hibernate windows
    exit dropbox
