May I ask if you are the only user who works with the address book file at a time (from different Viewer machines)? If there are multiple users, a conflict may occur in which case it would be best to use a more advanced address book synchronization available in our self-hosted server.
If I can cut in here, if I am reading this right Larry, you need to access your various hosts machines from different PC/laptops, and you keep the address book in Google drive / dropbox. This is what I am struggling with now, with no web base log in how can I access my address book from each PC I log in from.
I am just trying this out after being ticked off with [censored] , I only have 3 PC's I access occasionally, mostly mine at Home from my work location. I have my PC, and 2 other PC's I access to help out occasionally, when I am at work I used to login to my PC at home via TV and check emails, or use my pdf progam to create an odd file for work.
I have just installed your viewer and host to my home PC and was wondering how I get on when I am at work to access these PC.
Also is I have to install viewer on the work PC to access home, how to I password protect it from any other staff accessing my address book and viewer
An easier way would be to use the Portable Viewer as described here.
P.S. Note that we only recommend using this "sharing via Dropbox" scenario if you are the only user. In a multi-user environment the only proper way to go would be to use automatic sync through the server.
