Drag and Drop
ID: 543    Status: Submitted    Version:    Report Date: September 7, 2017    Product: MKVCleaver Installer


Drag and Drop doesn’t work for me anymore since update to 0702. Using 64bit under Windows 8.1. Using the button “Open MKV files…” worx fine.

    I currently do not have any Windows 8.1 machines available. I can spin a VM up, but it would be way faster if you can test MKVCleaver in the safe mode to see it behaves the same way. And if you have another machine with 8.1 test on it as well.

    Also, have you tried all the versions ? Portable and Installer as well as 32 bit and 64 bit ?

    I’m unable to reproduce this issue.

    Please make sure you are not running MKVCleaver as Admin and make sure to whitelist it in any security software you might have.

    I will leave this bug open for now in case you can provide any more information.

    That COULD (probably is) an added “feature” you got from Microsoft in one of their recent w8 updates : be sure to check their forums – I’ve seen quite some discussion regarding W8.1 and drag & drop a little while back.
    I haven’t read the discussions since they didn’t concern me, so I am not saying it’s definitely so, but where’s smoke & Microsoft combined, there is usually fire for sure 😉 Sorry to budge in b.t.w. but since it might be a helpful tip, I didn’t want to keep it to me.

    Hi guys, just a little quick info about this “bug”: I just went back to 32bit after I got another “bug” : I got shown no window on the desktop, only shown in the preview from the taskbar. That’s weird – no new install helped. Now with 0701 32bit everything worked fine again (even the drag’n’drop)… Thanx for the help anyways 🙂
