Unfortunately using Windows XP makes this a bit harder if you are unable to authenticate with Dropbox.
If your Codebook for Android device is on the same WiFi network that your Windows XP desktop is, you can switch the synchronization provider in Codebook for Windows over to Desktop WiFi, then from Codebook for Android switch your sync mode to Desktop WiFi and select the Overwrite operation, finally initiate the sync from your Android device. This will allow Codebook for Android to directly authenticate and synchronize with Codebook for Windows without using Dropbox.
If WiFi synchronization is not an option, the Dropbox issue is almost certainly due to Windows XP containing an older version of Internet Explorer which unfortunately can not be updated via Windows Update at this time. Do you happen to have a newer version of Windows that you can install Codebook for Windows on? Your license of Codebook for Windows allows you to install it on up to 5 difference PC’s. If so:
- Authenticate with Dropbox on the new Windows machine via Codebook for Windows, then exit Codebook.
- Copy the
settings.db file located in
%APPDATA%\Zetetic LLC\Strip from the new Windows machine to the same folder onto your Windows XP machine.
- Initiate a restore from Dropbox on your Windows XP machine from Dropbox.
Please note, Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP, and hasn’t since April 8th, 2014. Hopefully one of those two alternative will work, could you give us an update when you get the opportunity?
