Drag audio formats into live win 10 question.

Post by lalakulo » Thu Aug 23, 2018 9:03 pm

Almost ashamed to ask,

Can't drag any wav or mp3 from windows folder into a audio channel in live 10. Have to first add the folder into lives browser.
Running live 10 as admin.
Live 9 no problem at all.
Am i overlooking something? If anyone could help would be appreciated,

If Live is running as admin, then the other app (like a file explorer) has to be running as admin too, otherwise the OS security doesn't let it affect an app that is admin level.

Solved it,
Since the release of 10 to avoid problems had to run live as admin.
Think the problems are silently solved with a update.
Deselected run as Admin worked.
