Error 404 when trying to use Share My Trip in Paintshop Pro X5


'Issue':  When trying to use "Share My Trip" with the Dropbox option in Corel Paintshop Pro X5, you may encounter  "error 404" when trying to view the link that is provided for the project. 



If you see this error message, and you created a Dropbox account after October 4th, 2012, the Public folder is not enabled.

Dropbox has made changes to their service -- the Public folder is not enabled by default. A true Public folder, which allows public sharing, has a globe symbol on the folder. 



If you have a Public folder in your account that does not have this symbol, or if no Public folder appears, please follow the steps below.
