    Opening Dropbox

    I has any one had trouble open Dropbox on a mac with macOS Monterey after downloading Dropbox then double click it to install it

    Is this a new Mac with the M1 chip? If so, there is a situation where Dropbox is being late to update their app to support the M1 version of Monterey. Here's a couple links for your review:

      Although Dropbox doesn't have an M1-native app yet, the Dropbox app will run on an M1 Mac using the Rosetta 2 compatibility layer. I mention this only to avoid any confusion about whether or not Dropbox will run on an M1 Mac.

      That being said, if you're running into an issue installing Dropbox, it would be best to contact their support for assistance: https://www.dropbox.com/support

          It is not M1. The first M1 chipped Macs were introduced in November 2020. The asking if you had M1 is a troubleshooting question. So we now know your problem is not related to issues with the new chip. Mark may have an answer for you as he deals with Dropbox issues on a daily basis.

            I get an error message saying "Couldn't start Dropbox". I have reinstalled Dropbox, but still getting this error. should I reinstall it again?

              If re-installing Dropbox didn't fix the issue, I would recommend contacting Dropbox's technical support team here:

              https://www.dropbox.com/support

              They will be best equipped to determine why it won't start.
