Cannot drag/drop vector objects from Illustrator CC to Photoshop CC


I recently formatted my computer and in doing so lost my preferences from my Adobe programs.

I drag and drop vector images to Photoshop constantly. After the reset, dragging images to Photoshop will not place them in my canvas. The cursors act as though it is going to work (cursor does not change to stikeout circle). I am able to copy/paste, but I lose the Vector Smart Object attribute in doing this.

I do not want to save my AI files and drag and drop the files from the explorer library into my canvas. This is a waste of time. I have explored changing UAC controls, and opening as administrator, and blah blah blah.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
