Xojos' own drag and drop example not working

Did one have the semicolon and the other not?

That is indeed the only difference. I checked what FileTypes1.Any was returning on both machines and that was the only difference.

The text “special/any” without semicolon and without the filetypeset worked fine when I tested it with Windows 8.1. Apparently Windows is kind of finicky and the FileTypeTest is required. Although all what FileTypeSet does is provide the string…

Windows [quote]finicky[/quote] - Never!!! ( hint of friendly sarcasm )

For the record I used Win 7 Pro 32bit, with file typeset and “special/any;” - which worked.

I will locate other variants of the OS and run your suggestions to confirm - will place anything I find here.
