Drag and Drop from Windows Explorer no working in Win8

Hello all,

Recently I've upgraded my system into Win8 (x64) and successfully installed foobar2000 with my previous settings back in Win7 (x64).

Everything seems to be working fine, except that I'm not able to "Drag and Drop" files from Windows Explorer folders into foobar2000, which is a feature that I personally use very much. The "Not available" cursor appears when trying to add new files this way.

The first time, I installed foobar2000 v1.2.1 but recently upgraded into the new v1.2.2 still having no luck with "Drag and Drop".
I have even tried with a fresh install (no previous settings) but had no luck either.

I'm also using "Columns UI" interface version with my custom settings.

The only scenario where I had success is by doing "Drag and Drop" after opening "Add files..." option inside foobar.

Is there a way to make the "Drag and Drop" files from Windows Explorer folders functionality available in Windows 8?

Thanks in advance, and please let me know if I'm missing any info.

Best regards,
