For security reasons Windows Vista may disallow drag and drop between windows that have different security permissions. As a consequence WM_DROPFILES messages may be blocked.
You can read more about the problem on this Microsoft forum



Interesting reading here...

My problem is that seems that i cant access (read/write) registry to save my app config without admin privileges. Is this true? Anyways any app needing Admin rights is in trouble with DragAcceptFiles under Windows Vista ... Confused [/quote]

Mmm.. I may use an installer with Admin rights that creates the key and the values and then my app should work ok (seems that Vista allows to change the values of the key values without admin rights).

But if your app needs admin rights for other reasons...
