I have tested it and figured out, that you can't reset the
windows WS_EX_NODRAG flag during runtime. I think you can only set this attribute during a CreateWindowEx Api call which creates the window ... Resetting the attribute with this code bring no results because my explanations above:

Private Declare Function SetWindowLong Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowLongA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As Long) As Long
Private Const GWL_STYLE = (-16)
Private Const GWL_EXSTYLE = (-20)
Private Const WS_EX_NODRAG = &H40000000

Private Sub Form_Activate()
 Call SetWindowLong(Me.hwnd, GWL_EXSTYLE, WS_EX_NODRAG)
End Sub
