How do I use the Dropbox app to get .hl files on iPad?
This was the only way I was aware of.

Just open the dropbox app. Log in. Find the file and click on it to download to the iPad (ignore that it says no preview available). In the right top corner is three dots click on it to get choice of options. Click "Export" and in the new window select "Open In...". Then in the list of apps click on "Copy to Hero Lab" which will open the HL app and start the install process.

Note have not done this myself in awhile and the dropbox app has added an extra step now of "Export". Use to open right up with the list of apps.

That worked.
No error about my version of HL either.

Excellent.

Thank you.

EDIT: Nevermind, missed a step

"Unable to create export file. Verify that the filename specified is valid."

It doesn't seem to matter what filename variation I use, I'm always getting this error.

Hate to rez this thread but as I am attempting to do a updates.xml file I figured I bring it up here. Seems HeroLab's Updater isn't liking the the way I am doing this. I am using dropbox for it all and have done the ?dl=1. Any suggestions?

XML can NOT have & characters unless used as an escape character. Google XML Escape characters for a full list.

But the above needs to become:
