I'm on a WinVista PC. I was able previously able to drag-and-drop files between FZ and windows explorer. FZ did it's usual update/check/install tonight and now I'm not able to drag-and-drop files anymore.

Try re-registering the shell extension.

32bit system: Open command shell, navigate to Filezilla directory and type 'regsvr32 fzshellext.dll'.

64bit system: Do the above, additionally type 'regsvr32 fzshellext_64.dll'.

There is, sort of. It's just that the 64-bit version is also called "regsvr32.exe". They're stored in different locations.

Compatibility reasons, I guess...

<> = represents a keypress
WIN = key with Windows flag on it
find out the type of OS by pressing <WIN>+<BREAK> (or right click 'My Computer'/'Computer' and select 'Properties')

-Press <WIN>+<R>
-type 'cmd' (without quotes), press <RETURN> (see Vista warning below)
-type (dep. on your location) 'c:', followed by 'cd "\program files\Filezilla FTP Client"' (don't type the single quotes, BUT TYPE THE DOUBLE ONES), <RETURN>
-type 'regsvr32 fzshellext.dll', <RETURN>
--
-------64bit only---------------------------------
-type 'regsvr32 fzshellext_64.dll', <RETURN>
---------------------------------------------------
--
-type 'exit'

Vista warning: On Vista with UAC enabled, you need to
-Click Start Menu, navigate to All Programs - Accessories, RIGHT CLICK 'Command Prompt' and select 'Start as Administrator'
-After confirming the UAC mumbo-jumbo continue to proceed like normal

Thanks a lot! It appeared like it worked! I got the 'success' pop up message. I won't be able to check it until I'm out from behind my home router (I can't get FileZilla to connect at home - I think it has something to do with the IP address), but will check it at school where it always works and hopefully it fixed it.

Thank you for your help.

Yeah. :oops:

I forgot to write you have to press <RETURN> after each command.

Quote:
C:\Windows\system32>c: <RETURN>
C:\Windows\system32>cd "\Program Files (x86)\Filezilla FTP Client" <RETURN>
C:\Program Files (x86)\Filezilla FTP Client>regsvr32 fzshellext.dll <RETURN>
C:\Program Files (x86)\Filezilla FTP Client>regsvr32 fzshellext_64.dll <RETURN>

Mine still doesn't work after sucessfully regsvring the dll. I get:

Could not determine the target of the Drag&Drop operation.
Either the shell extension is not installed properly or you didn't drop the files into an Explorer window.



I've tried dropping a folder and a file and neither work. Instead of the folder or file I always get a folder named something like fz3-12344695938400. I've tried dropping to my desktop and also the C:. Any suggestions?

EDIT: Also I can get files from command prompt ftp.exe, just not the filezilla client.

I have the same problem. Drag and Drop gives the above error on my Vista computer.

In Vista it is important to run the command prompt elevated.
