3dsmax2013 drag and drop file from browser doesn`t work :(

Hi dear cgtalkers!

I have some problems with max 2013, maybe somebody has an idea how to resolve it.
I made a web browser based model library for our assets for internal use. Ppl could “upload” their stuff to this site, add categories, tags, etc… and it worked very well in max2011. Since we moved to 2013 dragging and dropping from the web browser into max is not possible anymore. The files that were cataloged in the system had a local file link to the file on our server. So you saw the image of a model, and it was hyperlinked to the file like “file://///sever/library/maxfile.max”, and if you dragged and dropped that image onto the MAX viewport, it brought up the import/merge file dialog. Not anymore.
Anyone have any idea what could be wrong? I have everything running in admin mode, and I can drag and drop files from windows explorer, but that`s a big setback compared to the browser based system.

any idea?

Check permissions/security from network locations. A google search might do the trick in finding some fixes.

Thanks for your answer. I googled for security settings, but I doubt that causes the problem, since I have the same settings for 3ds max 2011, and it works there. I open an instance of 2011 and another of 2013, I can drag and drop the files from the web browser into 2011 and I can`t do the same in 2013...
