Same system. Guest is Ubuntu 20.04 clipboard works with that guest. Same system. Guest is Windows 7. clipboard works with that guest. Must assume this is a Windows xp issue.

Possible work around: Set the following services to automatic. Network DDE DSDM ClipBook Wait a long time. Kill vboxtray and run vboxtray. Could be intermittent. Will update later this month when I use the system for a great deal of copy/paste for several hours.

Clipboard is resolved in 6.1.8.

Thank you!
