Love srvany... been using it for years now. Question, I haven't set this up yet but I might. Curious, if you set the service to run as yourself and then left the path to your profile's dropbox copy would it just update that copy all of the time?
That way, when I login I could trigger a script that shuts the service off and turns the client on so I could use the client features when I'm logged in (assuming the service hides those?). Then on log off, I could restart the service.
Either way, great post.

Hi. I like your tutorial.
But somehow it's not working for me.
The Dropbox service is running, but the syncing is not happening (while it works when I run the Dropbox.exe itself).
I had to use Local System account while creating the service logon. Could that be the reason?

I can't say whether the local account is the problem. I believe I used a non local account during installation. I think the account just has to have server level admin access in order for this to work. Can you try it while logged in as the domain administrator?

Have you had it long-term use?
Dropbox will automatically upgrade，
Older versions will not be able to login,
You should use the schedule，"net stop Dropbox"，
and "start Dropbox.exe"，
Wait ten minutes，"pskii Dropbox.exe"，
Then，"net start Dropbox"
I install Dropbox as a service 2 years，
However, both will often stop working because Dropbox must upgrade。

Great Tutorial, Thanks Branndon.
I got stuck on the user account for a couple of hours too, Thanks Amin for bring that to light.
Local Admin was no good had to switch over to the domain admin to run the service and everything came clean.

Any idea how I can get this to work with amazon cloud drive? I can get the service to start but it doesn't seem to be syncing when I'm off.
Sorry, I don't. I wrote this original tutorial as I was learning how to do it, I'm not an expert at services.
