Version 7.5.6.0: When I click on "Save to Dropbox for Apps" I get an error message saying "Could not bind socket. Address and port already in use." How can I fix this issue so that I can copy my file to Dropbox and then to my iPad?

MacOS? IF so, save to Dropbox is unsupported.

Not a MAC. Windows 10.

Suggest a reboot of Windows. Maybe a reboot of RM would suffice to clear the problem.

Reboot modem and router as well.

Thanks, but have rebooted everything at least twice and nothing seems to help. I suspect that it may have something to do with the fact that I mapped a drive in order to solve a network problem and I probably used an incorrect drive letter...

This has been reported before but I cannot remember what, if any, solution there was. It sounds as if RM is in conflict with another process for the same transmission protocol socket. RM might even be competing with itself.
