If you need to drop files, just

1) Add a regular (dropdown) combo box to your dialog box.  In the properties box, clcik the "Extended Styles" tab and put a checkmnark in the "Accept files" checkbox.

2) Use the ClassWizard to derive a new class, say CMyComboBox from the standard CComboBox control.  

3) To that class, add a handler for WM_DROPFILES.  Make it so:

void CMyComboBox::OnDropFiles(HDROP hDropInfo)
{
      MessageBox("A file was dropped!");
      CComboBox::OnDropFiles(hDropInfo);
}

4) Use the ClassWizard to create a control-type variable for the combobox.  You can select the new class (CMyComboBox) from the list!

If you can make it that far, I'll tell you all about handling the HDROP parameter so you can figure out what was dropped.
