I just installed it and it seemed to work. How big is the image you're dropping in to the TokenTool and what's the image type (jpg,png,bmp)?

ive tried all sorts of different sizes and types nothing works it just gives me a circle with a line through it every time i try, like a no entry circle type thingy. Do i need to set it up somehow to be able to drop images onto it?

That actually sounds familiar and may be in the forums elsewhere, but I don't know the solution off hand. Perhaps you either didn't unzip the file and you're running it from zip folder or the location where you unzipped it is not allowing the program to save files there, like the root directory of C. I recommend unzipping a new copy in your my documents area to make sure.

Well, not sure what's going on then. Try removing all versions of java, restart computer then install java 7 64bit.

Put an image on your desktop. Now drag from desktop to application.

that doesnt work either still gives me the no access symbol no matter what image i try or where its from. I extracted all the files, uninstalled java8 and installoed java 7. removed and reinstalled tokentool. would my antivirus block it somehow?

I wouldn't think so. I suspect it may be a windows 8.1 privileges setting or related to maybe a gaming pad? Do a search for "drag and drop windows 8.1 not working" and there a couple of solutions/workarounds.

Try this one. Right click on tokentool jar file and select open. Try to drag n drop. People have complained about other applications where the drag and drop stopped working when using admin privileges which seems backwards to me.
