I've had no luck getting DropBoxTokenIssuer.exe to work either, and have unfortunately put forth quite an effort trying different things.

I enter my key, secret, and browse for my output file.  I click authorize.  This takes me to the DropBox login page.  I enter my credentials and login.  I click 'allow' to grant access to my application.

Then we get an HTTP500 error and no working token file.  Am I missing something?  There seems to be lots of evidence around different forums that this tool used to work, but has completely quit working at some point in the last 1-3 months.
