Thanks Kevin, that's clear..

Just in case any newbies are lurking on this thread. Don't take these 
comments the wrong way. Make not mistake about it: Revolution is the 
best tool on the market and my favorite oftware and  has allows us to 
do things (as non-programmers) that we would have otherwise had to hire 
out for 100's of thousands of dollars.

OK back on point here. Focus on issues..

Re drag and drop problem, yes, using 2.5B2 and no didn't copy plug ins 
folder but yes did copy "some" plug ins that I use.

I will send it another bug report... as I depend on this facility quite 
heavily (ability to get a full path from a file drop to a field that 
copies it to the clipboard.
