Project Description
It enables Firefox & Chrome users to drag & drop files directly into their SharePoint document libraries. This makes single and multiple file upload much simplier & user friendly. Both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 are supported.

For other browsers, which do not support FileAPI, like IE, this component does nothing. So they do not get confused. 

Here is an intro videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0QpRt71TA8

Installation instructions:

  1. Choose the right package for your platform from Downloads section & download it
  2. Open Command prompt on your server. Go to the directory with wsp package you just downloaded. Deploy the wsp to your SharePoint 2010 farm using this command sequence: 
    SET STSADM="%SystemDrive%\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\BIN\STSADM.EXE"
    
    %STSADM% -o addsolution -filename RENIT.DragNDropUpload.SP2010.wsp
    %STSADM% -o deploysolution -name RENIT.DragNDropUpload.SP2010.wsp -immediate -allContentUrls -allowGacDeployment
    %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs
    Have you SharePoint 2007 run this:
    SET STSADM="%SystemDrive%\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\STSADM.EXE"
    
    %STSADM% -o addsolution -filename RENIT.DragNDropUpload.SP2007.wsp
    %STSADM% -o deploysolution -name RENIT.DragNDropUpload.SP2007.wsp -immediate -allContentUrls -allowGacDeployment
    %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs
  3. Activate the Web Application scoped feature called "Drag & Drop upload for SharePoint"

Now you should be able to drop files into every document library you have permissions to.
