I have a windows application that can drag and drop files from File Explorer/Desktop into a listbox. It works fine in the Visual Studio Express 2013 environment in both debug and release builds. I have created an exe using Inno5 and when deployed as a stand-alone version - the drag and drop works for the first time but when it is shut down and opened again, all the drag and drop file functionality fails and the the copy effects are lost (Win 8). Extracting files from listbox also fails. I have been getting really frustrated with this and hope that some light might be shed on this issue? I have allowed drop in the listbox and the form and it fails on my desktop too (Win 7). Help would be very much appreciated.
