I think you can only set the dragdata if the drag initiates in LiveCode. 
If the drag starts from a different app, like the Finder, then it isn't 
settable. I haven't tested that exactly but that's my interpretation of 
the entry in the docs.

Since your dragEnter handler successfully populates a file list, can't 
you just use that instead of trying to reset the drag array? Seems to me 
by the time you get to "dragEnter" you are already in the object and 
ready to act on it.
