    Drag & drop into Batch Converter

    My workflow for converting lossless files involves using a program X to find the ones that have their Archive bit set, and then dragging those files into another company's converter program window. I can't do that with dbPowerAmp as it doesn't seem to support drag and drop. (The dbPowerAmp shell extension "Convert to" menu doesn't help on x64 as program X is 32 bits and doesn't load it.) I'll have to stick with other converter programs unless I'm overlooking something in dbPowerAmp; if not, drag and drop would be a good feature to add.

    You can drag and drop on to the music converter page I think?

    When I run Music Converter, the first thing it does it put up the Windows file selector dialog. If I press Cancel, it exits. I have to select a file and press OK in order for the Music Converter dialog to appear. Then I find I can drag/drop onto that dialog. I don't want to have to fiddle with the file selector dialog every time. Is there a command line switch to suppress it, so that starting Music Converter will take me directly to the Music Converter?

    No, you need at least one file to get the converter on the screen.
