Drag and Drop Fun with Windows Vista

Still wrapping my head around the “protection” services in the Vista operating system. What should have been a trivial implementation — improving the drag and drop features for YourOtherMind 8.1 — turned into a headache as I got burned trying to figure out why my drag and drop operations were not working.

Of course it turned out that I was debugging under Vista (which makes the application have a different security level than the internet browser I was trying to drag from).

The easy fix once I realized what was going on… run the browser as Adminstrator. This allowed me to drag/drop from it, while still running through the debugger.
