@TheArtfulDodger - curious: why are you running calibre "as a different user such as administrator". DnD of a file into the book details of a portable I have on my data drive works fine.

Running calibre as administrator shouldn't be necessary.

Hello, BR:

I wasn't even aware I was. At sometime in the distant past I must have had a problem and clicked the box in properties. It's now unchecked!

Thanks for the heads up - I thought Kovid was talking about the fact that my account in Windows is as an Administrator.

I assume you can now DnD into the Book Details panel.

Coincidentally I was another application support site today, and someone there had had a similar DnD problem. They also had the Run As Admin box checked in the programs Properties->Compatibility tab for some inexplicable reason. After they unchecked it their DnD problems were solved.

<rant>In my experience it's rarely a real solution to a problem, might be a workaround pending a fix, or a diagnostic aid. If it's really needed the application installer should set it and the application doco should say why its needed.</rant>
