Mouse middle-button click/dragging caption doesn't work with Adobe Reader X

I recently update Adobe Reader from 9.?? to latest X version and found that it's impossible to move Reader's windows to next monitor.
Still on Windows XP SP3 English.

What version of DisplayFusion are you using? If you're using the latest Beta 15 it should work. The current public version (3.2.0) doesn't work with Adobe Reader X.

Can you try updating to version 3,3? Also, unfortunately this option won't work with Reader X in Windows XP (if that is what you are using), sorry.

I tried with DF 3.3, Windows XP Pro Eng with all updates, Reader X 10.0.1. Seems like it doesn't work for me.
If I downgrade to Reader 9 will it work?

Yes, downgrading to Reader 9 or upgrading to Windows 7 will fix this issue.

Strange. It's window looks like very common window.

Ok, I'll switch to 9 version of Reader.

It looks like a normal window, but Reader X introduced something called a "sandbox" which prevents any external applications from interfacing with it. DisplayFusion in Windows Vista and Windows 7 can interface with Reader X, but not in Windows XP, sorry.

So, you say, it doesn't work only on XP. Fun! I'll try to implement test example:
1. Get window handle under cursor (without hooking middle button);
2. Call SetWindowPos, MoveWindow or some WinAPI funcs.
Hope this method will work.

The window can be manipulated, unfortunately that's not the issue. Detecting the clicks in the window is the issue. Without installing a global mouse hook (yuck, DisplayFusion used to have this and it caused too many performance issues) there isn't a way in XP to do this, sorry.
