FX file darg n drop

I’m not able to drag fx files in to a patch from a windows explorer. It just makes the string path as soon as I let go of the mouse button.

  • Does it in a new patch, or in any saved patch.
  • Does not matter if the shader is in the search pat or not
  • Running as admin and or having UAC off does not help

Beta 30.2_x86 Win7_64

had that crap yesterday
happened with file received on skype
when you move windows explorer says file opened in skype, and vvvv can’t read it in meantime lol

same problem here.

hm…would be interesting to find a pattern for this.
i think programs run as admin specifically have troubles accepting dropped files for security reasons. but otherwise dropping fx files basically works here.

so there must be something specific going on when it doesn’t work and we’d have to be able to reproduce a case in order to fix it.

Would love to give an example patch, but I can’t find or make one in Beta 30.2_x86 that does NOT have this behaviour -at least on my machine :P

I checked 27.2 - 30.1 and they all worked fine. They are sitting next it so permissions are all the same.

Here is what I got when dropping a fx file with exceptions turned on:

Any other infos that might be relevant?

Happens to me right now. Neither drag’n’drop nor Open in Patch do work.

  • file received via mail

  • unzipped

  • happy fresh vvvv started

  • none of the fx files could be dropped

  • closed vvvv30.2

  • tried the same with 29.2

  • working there

edit: i narrowed it down to the packs folder !

  • standard vvvv with addons works fine
  • from the moment i have the dx11 stuff installed, drag drop doesnt work

looks like this:

/pack/DX11 was the right clue. thanks. fixed.

great. A point update for this soon would be good :)
