You have to do this on each input you want to accept drops, not just the first one:

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)oÝ÷ Ø  l£*.­×¦¡Ú²}ý¶Æ¯zØ^
í®HíërÝznµº1jëh×6$file = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 5, 300, 20)
$sentence = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 35, 300, 20)   ; will now accept drag&drop files
