Copy and Paste stoppped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have hosted two windows XP VM's using "Oracle VM box Virtual Manager" from a machine A. The both VM's are take RDP by the machine B. Now, Cut, Copy & Paste is not working in machine A. Unable to copy & paste even on notepad. However, copy & paste is working once RDP of VM's are closed from machine B.

    Regards,

  • Hi PrathapSngh,

    It usually occurs during Remote desktop sessions, and the problem is on the remote machine.  The best solution I have found is to pull up task manager, end the process rdpclip.exe, and then restart it by first changing focus from task manager to another program and back to task manager, choose file>new task (run) and then typing in rdpclip.exe and hit enter.  The remote clip service will restart, and usually the copy you wanted to paste immediately becomes available.

    If you fail to change focus from Task Manager to another program and back you may find the remote session locks up.  If so, don't panic, simply end the remote session and begin a new one.

    Hope it will be helpful to you
