Wise Folder Hider - drag and drop doesn't work?

Recommended Posts

Yes... WFH v2.02.83 portable with Win7 64bit.

It doesn't matter that much if drag/drop doesn't function, but it would be nicer.

 

I need to use the portable version, because I don't have admin permission on the computers where I'll be using my flash drive.

 

One thing I need to test on Monday when I get into work, is whether or not the UAC prompt asks for administration elevation

when running WFH.exe. Do you know if it requires admin permission in order to work?

I have set UAC on its maximum level and it always asks me admin permission.

Anyway, I have now tried to reduce (lower) the level (two times) and the message always appears.

I'll (now) try with the installer version, if the drag and drop works ok.

 

Edit: installed, but it doesn't work.

Hence it seems that drag and drop function doesn't work, at least using win7 x64 and win8.1 x64.

Unfotunately I have no control over my work computers, so I can't change anything.

That's is one of the major problems I'm having in finding a security solution for my flash drive!

I lowered the UAC level (and rebooted the machine) to the second option "Notify me only when applications try to make changes to my computer (do not dim my desktop) - Don't notify me when I make changes to windows settings", but the problem persists.

(Note that I'm not using WFH, I'm just confirming the issue)

I don't think drag'n'drop has ever worked.

I've been using WFH since v1.53 up to v3.13. All of these have been full installs, not portable and running on WinXP up to Win7 64-bit.

I just have to keep on manually locating to the folder in question to hide each time.
