drag and drop does not work between win7 ultimate 64, and xp sp3 x86 guest.

host to guest results in the (X). guest to host result is the mouse will exit the guest, but the file icon will remain within the guest.

Same here. It wasn't working in 4.2 version and 4.2.2 neither.

As written in the changelog, drag and drop is currently only implemented for Linux guests. We will add support for more guests with future releases.

Here drag and drop does not work at all in a XP SP3 x86 guest (NOT from host to guest): one cannot drag files in windows explorer, emails in ms outlook and so on. It was ok in 4.1.22.

Olaf, did you enable drag'n'drop for that VM? If so, does the behavior change if you disable it?

Replying to frank:

Frank, I just tried all 4 setting - none of them changed the behavior. On an other guest with the 4.1.22 guest additions still installed drag'n'drop works like a charm.

Drag'n'Drop also doesn't work between OSX Host and Win7 Pro guest, including on the Feb 2013 release. (4.2.8)

comment:7 by Frank Mehnert, 11 years ago

Yes, and the changelog items which mentions drag and drop also mentions that this is only supported for X11 guests right now.

Yep I have the same Error I using fully installed 4.3.8 r92456 with extensions on a Fresh installed windows 7 host and using a XP pro updated install. "drag and drop" doesn't work in anyway disabled all my security.. I used VirtaulBox for many years and this first time had this issue.
