Description

Hello,

I have VB 4.1.2 installed on my Windows 7 64 PC running a guest of Fedora 17. I have installed the guest additions, but I cannot get the bidirectional clipboard sharing to work. I have searched the forums, and tried a couple suggestions (Uninstalling / reinstalling the guest additions), but nothing works.

You probably mean VirtualBox 4.1.20. Please be aware that the shared clipboard is disabled for new VMs by default. Please terminate your VM and change the VM settings to enable the clipboard.

Hi Frank,

Yes, you are correct. It is VirtualBox 4.1.20... I forgot the zero. Anyway, I tried to install the exact same config on my laptop, and bidirectional clipboard is working there. I restarted my PC, and restarted VBox, and now it's working there also. I guess it's related to the other open bug where it works sometimes, and other times it does not. Since that other bug is open, this one should be closed. Thanks for the help!
