Copy/Paste Guest Windows Server 2012 not working

Reported by: AntiMatter2 Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.2.2
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


Guest: Windows Server 2012 RTM + latest Windows Update

Host1: LinuxMint 11 x64 Host2: Windows 7 Enterprise x64

Virtualbox 4.20 and 4.22, each time the Guest Additions has the same version than the host.

Copy/Paste doesn't work between Guest and Host, in both directions. All VM had been shutdown and restarted. Other features seems to work OK (Display, Network, Share drives). Only Guest Windows Server 2012 is affected. Other Windows Guests works OK (tested with Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows XP).

Hope you can reproduce the issue and fix it in the next update.

starting with VirtualBox 4.2 you have the explicitly enable Shared Clipboard in the VM options.

Can also confirm this an issue with Windows 8 host OS and Ubuntu 12.10 guest. Cut and past is not working. Looks to be working with Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, but not 12.10.
