This could suit your needs:
Turn Off User Account Control (UAC) for a Specific Application

Please note that I have no personal knowledge of this method. However, If you do try it, we would be grateful for your feedback.

Boy, I was hopeful this would do the trick, but it's the same.

I can drag the pictures onto my desktop, but not into Frontpage!!??
I asked what it said...
If it is on it can and will prevent drag and drops from working.

I should've been more explicit....turning Protection Mode OFF made no difference.

The only thing that works is turning UAC OFF.

thnx

Program downloads and installs just as instructions state.

You identify a program that should have UAC turned off and it creates a new shortcut on the desktop that is supposed to turn UAC off.

Unfortunately, I think it requires a path to the executable file, but all I can find is an *.lnk file pointing to my Frontpage installation and the new shortcut that gets created doesn't launch the program!!??

I just can't find a frontpage.exe file and I have no idea how to proceed!!!

Any ideas????

Alright. Protection Mode is off and you are not running your applications as admin? Does it work then?
(With UAC on.)

Protection Mode is off. Ive tried it both as admin and "regularly" without specifying I'm the admin and it won't let me drag and drop. (I'm the only user, so I don't know if it makes any difference.)

Turning off UAC is the only thing that makes it function like it used to on my prior Vista PC!!??

Not sure if anything here will help:
FrontPage.exe help

Quote:
The FrontPage folder in Program Files is an Operating System folder, and has
nothing to do with FrontPage the web editor.

If it has been installed, Frontpg.exe will be in the Program Files\Microsoft
Office folder
, otherwise install from the Office Premium Disc 1.

I figured it out!!!

First I determined that my FrontPage executable file was frontpg.exe and I used "Turn Off User Account Control (UAC) for a Specific Application" to open it.

UAC didn't ask me if I wanted to actually open FrontPage up!

I then opened MSIE9 and tried to drag and drop pictures- DIDN'T WORK!!!

Sooo, I used "Turn Off User Account Control (UAC) for a Specific Application" to open MSIE9.

Magic, I can drag and drop!!!!

Then I close FrontPage and open it the old way from a standard shortcut and I can still drag and drop!!!!

My conclusion: The problem is with the way MSIE (8 or 9) function in Windows 7 vs. the way they worked in Vista. I have to disable UAC for MSIE to allow it to drag and drop....it has nothing to do with FrontPage.

"Turn Off User Account Control (UAC) for a Specific Application" seems to work great and was a snap to install and use to create new shortcuts that bypass UAC!

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure if this is just a problem with Win x64 but unable to drag drop to either a ZIP or RAR file under explorer. Can drag and drop normal files to other folders/drives but when trying with a ZIP or RAR all I get is the line thru' the 0 - so a no go. Have a laptop with Win7 x86 and that works...
