Could you give me more info, I cannot find where MM shows 'Copy' ?

Once I drag it onto MM then "Product Installation" dialog appears.
Tested MM 4.1.1626 skinned/skinless, Win 7

Try as follows:

In Windows explorer, click and hold down mouse button on an MMIP file.
Drag the file onto MM's player (don't release the mouse button)
--> An icon for the MMIP file is displayed next to the cursor along with '+ Copy'

I'm suggesting that it should indicate 'Install' instead of '+ Copy'.

Aha, I tried the same from Total Commander, therefore I could not replicate it.

I am afraid that it is up to Windows Explorer, but I will try to adjust it.

It is up to Windows Explorer what it is showing for the particular Drop Effects. e.g. If I drag from Total Commander it shows just "+" sign
There are 4 drop effects: Copy, Move, Link, Scroll :
I can change to "Move" or "Link", but I guess it doesn't help.

Maybe the "Link" is the most appropriate for this action?

Fixed in build 1627.

Per IM discussion, changed to "Link" for MMIP
