Launching Windows Media Player Kills Host to Guest Clipboard Functionality
|Reported by:||gaborbay||Owned by:|
I have been noticing that the guest to host clipboard will suddenly stop working.
I finally figured out that launching Windows Media Player is the culprit.
This is probably a bug that is not encountered very often, or it is not reported very often. But if WMP causes this issue, other apps might do it to.
To Reproduce: Launch Vbox Open Notepad in Vbox Copy Value A from the Host Past Value A to Guest Notepad (this should work fine). Launch Windows Media Player Copy Value B from Host Past Value B to Guest (it will paste Value A instead of Value B).
The only way I have found to reset the clipboard is to Shutdown Vbox Change the Shared Clipboard to "Host To Guest", Launch Vbox. Shutdown Vbox Change the Shared Clipboard to "Bi Directional Launch Vbox.
I also attached log files.
