This seems to work.

Since the developer has given it over to the community.

Is there a method for disabling the prompt asking for the location of Growl.app? I do not use Growl, nor do I wish to do so. It's a bit of a nuisance, but not a deal breaker for me. I figured I'd ask and not assume that it is a requirement for me to select 'cancel' each time MDU is launched and requests the Growl.app.

Thanks ahead of time for any follow-up I receive either from the developer or fellow users.

I have 10.8.1 and it works great on my MacBook Air. I haven't tried it on My MacBook Pro with 10.8.1 but I will. It also works well on my iMacs 21" And 27" with Snow Leopard. Have you repaired permissions or used FSCK or DiskWarrior? Maybe that would help because it sure works well.

This is an Apple bug. Please see this post on my website for instructions on how to work around it: http://bit.ly/N0RP3u

Ah The gatekeeper is not working causing these problems That is why it is working for me and not for this user because I have the Gatekeeper turned off. I think only getting apps from the app store although protecting you is not a great idea.

Version 2.0.9, which was just released, will not install or launch. The OS gives the message,

(OSStatus error -67049.)

Could be a Mountain Lion issue.

From the author:

MacDropUpdate is still actively supported for automatically updating Dropbox.app to the latest forum build. Please note that the Dropbox forums are (as of 11 August 2012) currently offline for maintenance, and as MacDropUpdate uses information from these forums to know when a new version is available, you will an error message will appear saying that MacDropUpdate can’t connect to the Dropbox forums. Please don’t be alarmed; this is to be expected. Once the forums come back online, MacDropUpdate should resume normal functionality. Notwithstanding the Dropbox forums being down, MacDropUpdate runs on Mountain Lion for me without any troubles.

When is this going to work? It doesn't look like it will be any time soon per the Developer's posting.

I just checked the Forum for Dropbox is on line and still I get the same message to check my internet connection.

@solosaint Some people might take offense at your use of their Saviors name in your criticism. Just a tip to you as I KNOW you wouldn't want to intentionally offend anyone.

SOLOSAINT is allowed to Jeez everything he wants I guess. ;-)
My personal opinion: Religion: get over it. But also: don't offend people on the internet, especially not those who bring you FREE software or FREE support. It's not a right to use that stuff, it'S a priviledge.

@Lik I try not to offend anyone especially when it comes to religion or politics as far as my use of this app is concerned take a look at my recent review. I DO appreciate the Developer's efforts.

Ah sorry, I didn't mean you, I was generally speaking *pointing towards solosaint* …

I dont want to offend anyone, if any Muslims are offended by my picture representing Muhammad or any members of any cult are offended by simple words or pictures they should probably just pray. I dont know the rules to your cult or any religion as I am a scientist and we base our behavior on logic, facts, and our moral compass.

Getting really sick of this app asking be to install update Now or Later and no matter how many times I click on or the other in the last week I keep getting the notification when I quit Safari.

I suspect being on a geriatric Mac with PPCs the new version is incompatible?

How can I un-install please?

Hi Wizened,

I'm sorry that you've been having issues with MacDropUpdate. I see no reason why the latest version should not work on your PPC computer. MacDropUpdate isn't a particularly complex app, so you should be fine running it on an older computer.

I advise you update.

Great tool.
One thing though: it should be possible to change the time it updates.
