Please add support for the "ChangeWindowMessageFilterEx" portions of the Windows API.

Windows prevents elevated applications from accepting drag-n-drop messages from unelevated applications (IE: windows explorer). Therefore, if a developed application needs to run elevated (due to UAC), it can't accept any drag/drop events.

A workaround is to manually set the DnD messages on the relevant window via the ChangeWindowMessageFilterEx method. AFAICT, this isn't currently supported by MinGW.

Thanks.

    I have tested that 'workaround' and have verified that it does NOT work. Therefore, this addition for this reason seems unnecessary.

    Thanks for reporting. Missing API added (and other issues fixed) on trunk at rev. 6392
