Can’t Drag and Drop files to Visual Studio editor

April 27, 2011

Very annoying when you can’t drag-and-drop code, html, xml, etc files into your open Visual Studio. Here is the explanation :

When you run Visual Studio 2008 as Administrator it is running with different security permissions than your file system explorer. The lack of interaction between these two is done for security reasons. To get around this you’ll need to avoid running Visual Studio as Administrator. It really comes down to needing the same security permissions.

So if you need to run Visual Studio as Administrator then the Drag and Drop stops working. Not nice… :(((

Only workaround: Disable UAC
