Auto-Launch after Update/Install, no drag and drop.

Not sure if this has been reported, but this has occurred after every update or install I have ever done. After the install, the software launches automatically and on this first launch, the drag and drop function does not work. You can open files using the add folder or add files dialog, but in order for the drag and drop function work to, you must close and re-open the software one time. (Using on Windows 7)

It's about Windows security feature.

Installer runs under elevated privileges, and when the installer launches the EZ CD Audio Converter first time, then it is running also under elevated privileges. You cannot drag and drop from external Windows Explorer window because your Windows Explorer runs under normal privileges. (Windows security prevents transferring data between apps running under different privileges)
