    Get Drag & Drop MS Word image + DataFormats.EnhancedMetafile & MetafilePict

    Hi, help please.
    I am trying to Drag&Drop image from MS Word to Picture box.
    e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.EnhancedMetafile) & e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.MetafilePict) shows that data is present, but when I try
    Stream stream = (Stream)e.Data.GetData(DataFormats.MetafilePict);
    stream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
    Image img = new Metafile(stream);
    or the same for the DataFormats.EnhancedMetafile it crushes and doesn't work.

    there is same problem for the clipboard, but it is solved using PInvoke like
    //Pasting into PictureBox
    if (OpenClipboard(this.Handle))
    if (IsClipboardFormatAvailable(CF_ENHMETAFILE))
    IntPtr ptr = GetClipboardData(CF_ENHMETAFILE);
    if (!ptr.Equals(new IntPtr(0)))
    Metafile metafile = new Metafile(ptr,true);
    //Set the Image Property of PictureBox
    this.pictureBox1.Image = metafile;

    But what to do with drag and drop? How to obtain image?
