Topic "In windows vista, cannot upload using Explorer view..."

Author Message

In Windows Vista I cannot upload by dragging files from my desktop using the Explorer view, I have to use the "Norton view." I highly suspect that the reason for this is the fact that Windows Vista has a protected mode "sandbox" that Internet Explorer launches itself into. If WinSCP is using the functionality of Internet Explorer to create its view, then a good chance is that you cannot communicate with the Desktop and other applications unless these applications know to request communications with a lower permissioned process.

I don't think there is a fix for this issue, short of rewriting the Explorer look & feel. Otherwise, you'd need to put code in every program that may potentially interact with WinSCP, like Windows Explorer and the Desktop.

There's nothing in explorer view that is not also in commander view. What happens if you drag a file from explorer view?
