    I have been using portable version 2.17 on dropbox with success but have not been able to get the portable version of 2.24 to work. I get an APPCRASH error when launching 2.24 from dropbox. Repairing the .NET framework (version 4.5) has not helped. Version 2.24 runs fine off of a USB stick. Version 1.26 also works fine from dropbox and USB.

    Any advice on what to try next? Am I stuck with version 1.26 if I want to use it with dropbox?

    Are you saying you have the KeePass.exe file on DropBox? You should only ever keep the database (kdbx) on DropBox.

    cheers, Paul

    Yes, I have the KeePass.exe file on DropBox. Moving the KeePass.exe file to the desktop and keeping the kdbx file on DropBox solved the problem. Thanks for your help!

    ps. KeePass is fantastic and I sent a small donation.

    The best (safest) way to run KeePass is to install it locally. This puts KeePass.exe in a location that is much harder for malware to access and therefore compromise your data.
