    Drag and Drop no longer working in Windows 8

      Running ID6 on new computer running Windows 8.  I'm running as Administrator mode, but I can no longer drag images into designs.  I was able to in Windows 7.

          Update on the problem. 

           

          The problem was that you cannot drag and drop when in Administrator mode.  Indesign was crashing if I did not open in administrator mode.  The reason why Indesign was crashing has something to do with licensing of the computer and software...  This is a new computer and the c drive is a solid state chip. To conserve c drive space, we setup c:temp to be on a separate drive.  That's why Indesign would not open normally.  You must have your c:temp on your user account to be directed to c:temp. 

           

          control pane

          system

          Advanced system settings

          Environment Variables

           

          Changes must be made in four places.  Dig around here, you'll find them.
