VB Magic

Sort of found the answer to my sharing issue with WinRT & Dropbox

It turns out, if you have the same folder location on two different machines. E.g. the default drop box location c:\users\{user}\dropbox,  this makes the project fail to run on a the machine that wasn’t the one it was created on.

If you move the dropbox folder to a new location on the other machine, E.g. c:\Dropbox then it will run with no issues. A weird one this, no one had an answer to why it happens.

Hopefully if someone else has this issue, then this post may help them.

BTW: The person at the Workshop seemed to be taken aback that the app was written using VB too 😉
