Make Dropbox run on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion – Developer Preview 2 (11A419)

The guys at dropbox delivered a new version of their incredibly cool software yesterday. Dropbox Version 1.1.3 runs without you having to „hack“ anything on OS X 10.7 (Lion) Developer Preview 2. Have fun with it.

If you’re using Apple’s latest developer preview of OS X 10.7 (Lion), you’ve probably run into this problem: if you want to start Dropbox, it will tell you that you cannot run Dropbox on this version of OS X – and just quit.

Here’s how to fix it:
First, install the latest version of Dropbox (1.1.7).

Second, right click on „Dropbox“ in your Applications folder. Choose „Show Package Contents“. Open the folder „Contents“ and then open „Info.plist“ in an editor of your choice.
In there, replace all occurences of the string „1.1.7“ with „2.1.0“, save, RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, and you should be good to go.
I didn’t find this solution on my own, but I thought it could be helpful to have this information available somewhere on the internet besides the official forums.
