Supposing SikuliX 2.0.5 and dragDrop(img1, img2).

Your Python setup does not matter (we are using Jython to run the Python scripts).

If dragDrop does not work sometimes, then it is a GUI timing problem.

dragDrop in fact is something like this:
1. hover(img1)
2. mouseDown()
3. hover(img2)
4. mouseUp()

The critical phases are between 2.and3. and between 3.and4.
If the GUI is not ready at this time to accept the mouseDown/mouseUp

So you might experiment with the following packed in a def myDragDrop(img1, img2):

0.3 is some personal experience of GUI reaction times.
in your case it might be less or greater.

Can you help with this problem?
