I just purchased the 1Password family bundle for Mac / Windows, and tried to set things up with Dropbox sync last night for my dad on his iPad and Windows PC. I can access his PC remotely, but of course, not the iPad, so helping remotely will be a challenge. Here's the problem for which I have found no relevant solution after considerable web searching:
The PC is running Windows XP (SP3) and latest versions of 1Password and Dropbox downloaded and installed last night. Running latest versions (also as of last night) of IOS, 1Password, and Dropbox on the iPad.
I configured 1Password to place its keychain in My Documents\Dropbox\1Password\1Password.agilekeychain
The master password on both the iPad and Windows versions are simple (only alphanumerics, no punctuation or other special or weird characters). I can access my Agile keychain on either device using the same master password with no problem.
I created one software entry in the Windows keychain, and tried to sync from the iPad, hoping to see its keychain get updated with that entry, but I received the "Master Password was incorrect. Please enter the Master Password you used on Mac or PC." error that has been the subject of some discussion for several months.
The only solutions I have seen were related to special characters in the master password, or inability to find the file; I believe neither of these solutions is relevant in my case, since there is no complaint about failure to find the file, and I used no special characters. I also followed one instruction to check the contents of the file My Documents\Dropbox\.ws.agile.1Password.settings file, and found it contains [only] this text (1Password/1Password.agilekeychain), which is consistent with where I have configured the app to place the keychain (except that I notice the use of a '/' directory delimiter instead of the more conventional '\' Windows delimiter).
I have retried the sync several times, having reset the iPad in between, and am now out of ideas.
Any help to resolve this persistent and disappointing problem will be greatly appreciated.
