Hello everyone.  I'm new to the forums.  I've read the stickys but if I run afoul of any of the rules or norms here, please let me know.  I looked through the forums for help on this software, but all I could find were posts on Box Sync 3, which apparently doesn't work with the same settings.  I'd just install version 3, but I can't find a download for it anywhere.  So, I'll try to get version 4 working.  Here's what I did:

I made a seperate virtual drive for my installation, using 32 Bit Windows 7.  I installed Dot Net 4.0 for that virtual drive using Playonlinux and then used the 32 Bit MSI installer to install Box Sync 4.  The install completed successfully, but the program wouldn't load.  My Debugging output is as follows:

I am running a Lenovo Thinkpad running Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 32 Bit (2.8.6).  I am running an Intel Core i5-2410M @ 2.30 GHz x2.  4 Gigs of RAM.  I have an AMD WhistlerRadeon HD graphics card using the xserver-xorg-video-ati driver.

Please let me know any information that you might need, and thanks for any help you might be able to offer.

Anyone?  I think this is probably a .NET Framework issue, but I'm not really sure.

I struggled with this for a long time before I finally just gave up... If anyone has the install file for boxsync 3, I would use that...
