Hi,
if i use Drag & Drop to copy a file from winSCP to any folder and lock my workstation (winXP) the download is aborted with a messagebox "invalid handle" and no more drag&drop is possible.
if i use the copy-form (setting the target-dir in a edit-box) the download stays still alive.
can you please fix this error?

greets Frank from germany

I'll try to reproduce the problem. If I do not succeed, I'll ask you for further details.
Currently I would like to know what mode of drag&drop downloads do you use (shell extension vs. temporary folder). See drag&drop tab of Preferences dialog.

hi
i simply drag the file out of the filelist f.e. to my desktop. the Drag&Drop mode is "Use temporary Folder" and the other radiobutton is disabled (i can't use the other option, i don't know why...). the checkboxes are all checked. i think, you try to get the Drop-Target, when file is downloaded to the temporary folder. If the Workstation is locked when the download is finished, the desktop handle is invalid. to solve the problem i would try to get the drop-target in the drop-moment (before copying the file to temporary folder)

If I were able to get drop target at all, I would not download the file to temporary folder first Smile You may read F.A.Q. or search the forum for another posts on topic to find out more.

Anyway, can you try to use the other mode for d&d download? To enable it, you should do full installation of WinSCP (and restart afterwards). Please, let me know whether it changes anything.
