DRAG & DROP FILES

Highlighted
6 - Meteoroid

I cannot drag and drop files into Designer, I have done everything I can regarding "Running as an Administrator", however Designer is still "Running Elevated"...

Even if I right click and "Run as Administrator", Designer always runs in Elevated mode...

I have been given local admin rights as a user (by my IT dept).

 

Any help would be appreciated.

I think I have managed to answer my own question, and as such I have realised that I misunderstood someone else's post.

 

To be able to drag & drop:

 

DO NOT 'Run as Administrator'

 

And in Alteryx\Help\About should state "Running Non-Elevated"

 

You should now be able to drag and drop files straight into the Alteryx palette

Hope this may help someone else in the future.

 

Regards,

Kevin
