I am new to xLights and trying to learn the software. I watched the introduction video and it was very informative.
I created a test program to "play" with the software and learn what all the effects will do. I went through Setup and Layout, now I am in Sequencer. Every time I click on any of Effects buttons I get an error message, Drag & drop operation failed. Not sure what I am doing wrong but I am sure it is something simple. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

drag the effect down to the work area (right or left click i cant remember) and place where you want it to go, agai using right or left click and the shift button - allows you to stretch the effect to the desired size.
hope this helps,
ps post the error message would be helpful, in case its more serious

Here is an update. I decided to check for Windows updates and let it run all of them. That took forever and crashed the operating system, (Windows 10). I had to create a recovery drive from another computer and reboot from that. After it repaired Windows and started up correctly I went to xLights and magically it works correctly. If this is the biggest glitch in this project I will be in good shape. Thanks for the help.
