Hi, just installed latest versions of Musicbee and itunes on a new windows10 laptop.
I'm unable to drag and drop songs from itunes playlist into Musicbee playlist.
Works fine on my other laptops with same exact setup/versions.
I tried an older version of as well MusicBee, no luck.
Any Suggestions? thanks, Jay

You cant drag/drop into musicbee if its running as an administrator - thats the case if you are running the initial MusicBee installer. This is a windows restriction.
Restarting MB not as an administrator should solve the issue

Thanks, I'm fairly certain I'm not running MB or itunes as an administrator.
I can drag from Explorer into MB fine and from itunes into other software ok.
But I can't drag any single song files from itunes into MB. (I get the red no-go circle)

Interestingly though, I can drag multiple songs from itunes into playlist window in MB and it will generate a new playlist with those songs?

I really want to use Musicbee but need the itunes drag feature to work, I'm thinking of trying an older version of MB.
Any further suggestions?
thanks!

There is an issue with dragging from iTunes as its doing something unexpected. This should fix the issue:

unzip and replace the existing musicbee files

ok thanks Steven, do I just drag all these patch files into the original MB folder to replace those files? or something more specific?
