My company recently disallowed all access to dropbox on our work computers. Ever since I get this message about fences about once an hour:
"Fences.exe is blocked from accessing https://dl.dropbox.com by your organization at this time"
Is there a way to disconnect fences from dropbox so I stop getting the message? I'm not sure why it is trying to access it anyways.
Would you Please do this PURGE: https://forums.stardock.com/486084/fences-support-faq#reinstalling
Reboot and ReInstall the latest version from your account https://store.stardock.com/myaccount/products/
reboot ...test and report back if that works for you .

Fences has (had?) a version check that leverages dropbox.
Support should be able to provide a registry key to disable it.
Hi I tried the purge, reboot and reinstall and that didn't work. I still keep getting the message.
I have forwarded your report to the Stardock support team for their review and recommendations.
Please keep an eye on this thread for any updates.
We really do appreciate your feedback, thanks.
We are also seeing Fences attempt to hit dl.dropbox.com on 126.96.36.199 as of 10/14/2019.
Sorry to hear you are having trouble.
In the registry, try setting:
CrashReportingEnabled = 0

Hello Sean - we are having this same problem with all of our Fences installs. Are you saying to add a new registry key in
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stardock\Fences ? Can't find 'CrashReportingEnabled' anywhere in a search.
If it's missing, you can use this to create it:
I have exactly the same problem with my install of Fences. I'm using the latest 188.8.131.52 version, and it keeps connecting to dl.dropbox.com every 30 minutes. I have tried purge and clean reinstall with no success. I have tried setting CrashReportingEnabled value to 0 in Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stardock\Fences, but Fences deletes this value from registry and keeps connecting to dl.dropbox.com.
Please help, thanks in advance!
