as you've made a snide comment about Windows 7 in a different thread, i'll have to assume that's what you might be using as you've provided none of the asked for information.

the most likely reason is you've run Winamp as an administrator which if you then try to drop a file from Explorer onto Winamp will not drop the files - that is how UAC and process level protection works in Vista / Windows 7. the 5.61 installer is meant to remove running Winamp elevated after installing it which resolves that main issue. or just making sure Winamp was correctly closed and restarting it normally allows for drag and drop to work (as long as the program you're dragging from was run normally).

yeah I had the same issue and I found out that I've set the option of run as administrator on in the Winamp shortcut compatibility tab on on and then i removed it and now it can drug and dop

thank you
