Cannot drop and drop with IntelliJ 10 on Windows 7

I upgraded to IntelliJ 10 and can no longer drag and drop files into IntellJ. Anyone else seeing the same problem?

Hello Jeff,

Drag & drop to IDE doesn't work if you run it directly from the NSIS installer
(in that case it's run with administrator permissions, and Windows doesn't
allow drag & drop from non-elevated into elevated processes). If that's your
case, you just need to restart the IDE.

I upgraded to IntelliJ 10 and can no longer drag and drop files into
IntellJ. Anyone else seeing the same problem?

I see. I was running IntelliJ as Administrator. I shut down IntellJ and ran it normally and drag and drop works. However, if I run both Windows Explorer and IntelliJ as Administrator drag and drop does not work. Strange.
