Moving Messages In & Out of OE6 Local Folders

Moving Messages In & Out of OE6 Local Folders
I've had to re-install OE6 after an operating system recovery and am now having a small problem.

Previously I was able to:
> move messages from OE6 folders into external folders on the desktop for archiving
> move messages from external folders back into the OE6 inbox
> open and read messages stored in external folders

Now I cannot do any of these functions.

Seeing I could do this before, I suspect this is a setting issue but can't find where it might be.

How do I fix this?

RE: Moving Messages In & Out of OE6 Local Folders
What steps do you refer ??? I don't see any.

All I read is a discussion about Drag & Drop in Windows 10.

I have windows 7 where this worked before but doesn't now.

.................................................

Addition... - The plot thickens

I have messed about with this some more and find that:

I can drag emails out of OE6
I cannot drag and drop emails into OE6
I cannot open emails that are stored outside of OE6 when OE6 is open
I can open emails that are stored outside of OE6 when OE6 is closed

The only difference was in the installation of the program. First time I installed Version 2.00 and this time I installed Version 2.1

Please follow these steps:

disable UAC on windows 10:
http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-turn-off-...indows-10/

and use outlook express without administrative rights using special shortcut from Tray icon menu:
http://runasxp.com/Thread-Accessing-new-...-Tray-icon
Use that shortcut for sending and receiving emails because some settings may not be changed without administrative privileges. - See more at: http://runasxp.com/Thread-Drag-n-drop-a-...my7bN.dpuf

I don't have windows 10 Rafail. I have windows 7.

This was working perfectly before using your earlier version of OE6. It doesn't work now.

Sorry, because that happens on windows 10 i think that you are using windows 10.
On windows 7, it is much easier. You just need to disable UAC (User account control) and you will be able to move messages without problem.
Please follow this easy guide:

1.type UAC into the start menu or Control Panel search box.
   
2.Drag the slider down, click OK and reboot your computer.

That suggestion doesn't work Rafail.

Please see my explanation of the problem below:

I can drag & drop emails out of OE6
I cannot drag and drop emails into OE6
I can open emails stored outside of OE6 when OE6 is closed
I cannot open emails stored outside of OE6 when OE6 is open

All this worked perfectly before on same machine same everything EXCEPT the first time I installed Version 2.00 and this time I installed Version 2.1

Then this means that something in installation went wrong.

Please uninstall and reinstall version 2.1 turning off any running antivirus and closing all running applications

This is getting frustrating.

1. I have installed OE6 on another machine running Windows 7 - same problem
2. I uninstalled and reinstalled EO6 as you suggested with all applications closed. The same problem
3. When I reinstalled the machine refused to recognize the licence key (giving the incorrect message that the key was being used by another machine). So I had to use the 3rd key. Need to get this fixed also - I'm sending you an email about this.

RE: Moving Messages In & Out of OE6 Local Folders
I had reset your key (ending GF5). As for drag-n-drop problem, it should me solved by turning off uac.
I have also replied to your mail so we can check that with teamviewer if needed.
