I've recently got a Polemaster and although I've only used it once, it seems to work great. 

 

One niggle I have is when I go to connect, I always get a message saying "Cannot open file C:\blahblahblah\Polemaster\logs"

 

I can click "ok" but then the camera doesn't fire up. 

 

The file location is gives in in a folder I sync with Dropbox; if I turn dropbox off, the message doesn't appear and it all works fine. The folder the program is installed in is not affected by Dropbox. 

 

Is there a way to change the location of these log files, or do I simply have to workaround this and turn dropbox off?

Can you configure Dropbox so that the file location is not synced with Dropbox, which might allow you to still leave Dropbox  running?

I think I've tried that but will go back into preferences and check. To be honest, Dropbox is a bit of a pain and I'm not sure is worth the hassle with the laptop!

 

Thanks for the suggestion...I'll try again.
