Implementing Drag and Drop on List Control Items

Environment: VC++ 5.0-6.0, NT 4.0/2000/XP, Win 2000/ME

Level: Intermediate

In this article, I implemented a drag and drop operation for list control items. I implemented a list control that displays the graphics for a particular folder as thumbnails. The user can drag the thumbnails and drop them on the destination list control. The thumbnail actually gets copied from one list control to another.

    But it doesn't work here in Win98 and Win2k.
    Is any file missing in my computer or I have not
    followed the procedure properlly?
    I opened some files in left listbox and then try to
    do drag and drop with mouse on rightside list box.
    But didn't work.
    Thankx in advance.
