I've also been using Dropbox for my D&D campaign notes for several months. I've been looking into getting The Keep, and was ESPECIALLY excited by the prospect of being able to access it anywhere via my Dropbox. While I'm not completely computer incompetent, I'm no expert, either. So I have a couple questions.
1. I downloaded the trial version, so I can figure out how to get things working before buying the full item. Whether I save the install file to my PC or my Dropbox, it only wants to install to my C: on the PC. Do I just "browse" folder options and tell it to install to Dropbox instead? (Didn't want to mess with just trying this before I asked.)
2. The original poster mentioned running it from Dropbox using a "simple batch file." Is this something the computer will do for me automatically? Or do I have to write something?
Thanks in advance for your input, guys!
Hi Jeklar: When going through the installation choose the option to install to a flash drive. After making this selection choose the My Dropbox location for the installation. That will do it. I have instructions on the version posted to my blog. http://usandacat.com/thelair/?p=227
Re: Batch file. Yes, that is something that I did on my own. Here is what I setup. I created a file called "runthekeep.bat" in the My Dropbox folder. The batch file looks like this:
