You can't drag files from a low-privilege application onto a higher privilege one: that is by design: MSDN Q: Why Doesn’t Drag-and-Drop work when my Application is Running Elevated?[^]

However, you may be able to find a solution here: http://helgeklein.com/blog/2010/03/how-to-enable-drag-and-drop-for-an-elevated-mfc-application-on-vistawindows-7/[^] - but frankly, I doubt it will work too easily in a .NET application.
