Clayton,

I'm attempting to set up a situation similar to yours where I can share the same project on two computers (farm office and home office) using DropBox. I've been using DropBox for some time and really like it. I was glad to find your post on this subject. I did the following but it's still not working:

- Farmworks with my existing farm Project running on farm office computer like it's been for a good while.
- With FarmWorks shut down on the above computer I installed FW into a DropBox folder from the home office computer. I did so by choosing the dropbox file as the desination folder for the installation
- Those installation files are now viewable on either computer
- To open the program I need to find the farmworks.exe file in the folder located in dropbox. (I'll create a shortcut once I have it working right)
- I opened FW from the dropbox installation on the farm office computer and opened a backup copy of the project that was running on the original installation that I've used for a year or more. All jobs and maps are now viewable and working properly.
- When I start FW on the home office computer I can choose the correct project in the start-up screen, but when I open this project there is no maps or jobs. Everything is as it looks on a new installation. What am I doing wrong? Can you help me.

Dwight
