Drag and Drop file from one explorer window to another

Recommended Posts

I need to be able to select a file in one windows explorer window and drag and drop it into another windows explorer window.  Either drop it in the right hand panel or onto an item in the left hand tree view.

Can anyone give me example on how to do this?  Ideal is using ActiveX/COM interface as I want to run it from within Ruby, but a standalone script is also fine (can just compile it and call it from Ruby)

Not sure about the whole process, but could you use a command line switch like (explorer.exe  /n,/select,"C:Users7DesktopTCP.exe") to open a window and highlight the file, and somehow detect the selected file and drag it to a specific coordinate on the other specified window? would it work? In general i think it can be done, but i don't know how to detect the selected file.
