Update to v1.5.6.0

After a long time of no updates, here comes the latest version of DropboxPortableAHK.
I put this together very quickly to address the current issues regarding the automatic Dropbox update to v1.6.18 and v2.0.0, a further update will arrive during the next days.

Also, I want to thank you all for your support, your donations and thank-you emails and comments are highly appreciated and bring a smile to my face every time I get a new one. They remind me of why I keep supporting DropboxPortableAHK and that there are still so many people out there who use it on a regular basis. Thank you, guys, you rock!

  1. Thanks for the latest update. You’re awesome & doing a marvelous job. Previously i was using a tiny virtual OS to keep running multiple version of dropbox on my single machine but after getting your portable version, life is much much easier now. Thanks again for everything you’ve done with this utility. 🙂

  2. Thanks a lot!
    Just wanted to add my appreciation of your efforts.
    I carry around my dropbox in a pen drive thanks to DropboxPortableAHK instead of messy manually syncing!

  3. Danke für deine klasse Arbeit,

    ohne dich und die Dropbox, die überall und wo immer ich arbeite benutzen kann, würde ich meine Abschlussarbeit wohl nie schaffen!


  4. Super Programm.

    Kurze Frage: Wieso aktuallisiert er die Dropbox nicht auf die Version 2.0? Kann ich das irgendwie manuell runterladen bzw. raufspielen?

  5. I will throw my weight on the praise train – I love DropboxPortableAHK and use it every day. I assumed that it was going to be a ‘back-burner’ project of yours and didn’t want to bug or push you on it. However, if you still enjoy doing this to the benefit of THE WORLD, I thank you very much and will donate some moneys for the good fight. Thanks for everything!

  6. Gracias por las actualizaciones. Utilizo esta herramienta desde hace un tiempo y ahora no creo que pueda vivir sin ella.

  7. thanks for this application! I use it everyday and it is the only program I’ve found to run dropbox on a USB. I very rarely donate to software developers….but your program is great so you get a donation

    • My version keeps also hanging on “updating dropbox” since today (first use since friday), that’s why I’m already here to see if this was reported 🙂

    • It could be that Dropbox is already rolling out the 2.0.2 update to some of its users. I did not get it, yet, so please get in touch with me through the contact page in order to help me to provide a quick solution.

  8. I can’t install the portable application:
    “It’s impossible to conect to the dropbox-servers due to wrong date and time settings on the computer”
    The date and time is correct on the computer.
    Thanks for sharing your ideas!

    • This is an error caused by Dropbox itself, not by DropboxPortableAHK.
      Here is a help article by Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/help/159/en

      Are you behind a proxy or firewall? That might cause issues too, as explained in the link above.
      Maybe it works, if you delete your .dbfiles folder and start from scratch, but I doubt it.

    • Dropbox verteilt wohl gerade wieder ein Update. Solange das Update nicht vollständig durch läuft, ist es nicht so schlimm. Deine Dateien werden im Hintergrund trotzdem synchronisiert. Auch sollte die Meldung nach 15 Minuten verschwinden und wieder den gewohnten Status der Synchronisierung anzeigen.

  9. Danke für die Antwort. 🙂 Vielleicht wird es durch ein Update der portablen Version behoben, denn manchmal ist die Warterei doch arg lange bis die Meldung wieder weg ist.
    Gruß Astrid
