I have a bunch of .WSI / .MSI files that I can no longer drag and drop files into.  Just get a little red circle with a slash through it.  Anyone know why I wouldn't be able to update a .WSI with new files anymore?  The issue started popping up not too long ago and it's driving me nuts.

I have to copy the entire contents of the package to a local drive and use the "ADD FILE" button.  It's pretty damn annoying.  Yeah I know Wise isn't supported any longer but I like it and it does what I need it to.

Thanks in advance.

Been a while but I figured I'd let anyone who cares know what the issue was.  Disable UAC and back in business.  :)

Clearly, the drag-and-drop handling is broken.

The quickest route will be to install WPS onto a VM then copy the content of the relevant registry entries (e.g. Wise.Document, WfWIWSI.Document, MSI.Package, etc.) to your machine.

  • Interesting. I'll give that a try. Thanks.
    • Then again.. This is happening on 3 different machines! Win10 Laptop, WIn7 Desktop, Win7 VM.
