Yes.  Emacs on Windows supports dragging and dropping only of file
names, because (AFAIK) that is the only kind of entity for which a
d-n-d interface exists for C programs.  Dragging and dropping other
kinds of entities, including URLs, requires C++.

If someone knows how to do that from a C program, please speak up.
