Can't drag n' drop files into Vegas 9.0 anymore.

Hello everyone.

I've been using Sony Vegas Pro 9.0 for quite some time, and I've never had any trouble at all dragging and dropping video, image or audio files into it, however ever since I formatted my computer and then installed Vegas again, now it's impossible to do this.

Vegas will not let me drag n' drop any type of file, I have to manually add each file. This has become incredibly annoying. What is causing this?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Oh great I just solved it myself.

Program was running with administrator rights. This apparently breaks drag 'n drop.

I guess this can stay for posterity in Google results for someone in the future. Can be locked, sorry.

    I was just about to suggest to run WITH administrator... who would have guessed WITHOUT was the solution.

    Yeah, Windows won't allow you to drag from something running with non-administrator rights to one with administrator rights. I don't believe I've ever tried the reverse, though.
