in this code works drag and drop from Explorer to autoit-gui:

$object = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")
$GUI_ActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($object, 10, 10, 300, 400)
While GUIGetMsg() <> -3

With autoit this not works - please fix it. It works with autoit v3.3.6.1

I can drag and drop from a normal Explorer to the one embedded in that GUI in both directions with no problem. I am using (albeit an modified alpha version with a small change in a completely non-related area)

I'm not having any problems copying into the embedded window or from it to another folder. AutoIt on Windows 7 x64.

I've read your post in the German forums that you updated to before installing the latest beta. On that version it's also not working for me, but on it works just fine.
Maybe you didn't compile/run with the correct beta version when testing?
