Notepad++ is no longer able to do drag and drop or "Edit with Notepad++" windows explorer context menu. Clicking the context menu option has no effect, and when dragging a source file over the notepad++ editor the cursor changes to a circle with a slash through it.

Npp version: v6.1.5
Python Script Version: 0.9.2
Windows 7 x64

    You're running Notepad++ as administrator. Windows 7 (possibly vista too) will not allow messages from a non-elevated process to an elevated process, this includes the drag and drop messages, and the "open file" message from the explorer context. This has absolutely nothing to do with Python script.
