Description (last modified by frank) (diff)


I have problems using copy-paste text from terminal (vrdp connection) to my terminal. In last version of VirtualBox (2.2.2), the action copy-paste doesn't work and hung my destination application. The version 2.2 has problems with the clipboard. The version 2.1 works fine.

If I close the window VRDP connection, the clipboards works again.

I have similar issue with 2.2.2 nothing hungs but there is obviously a problem:

My setup is this

Host OS - Windows Vista 64X, Virtual Box 2.2.2 guest OSes - many Windows XP and one Vista

I access the host OS with RDP (6.1) All of a sudden I am unable to clipboard paste anything from outside of guest OS to inside it. Or the other way around. Clipboard only works locally. Text copied from my RDP client PC or from host OS does not appear inside guest OS at all. And anything copied in clipboard inside guest OS in not available outside. This happens at some point and after that I need to restart the host OS in order to get the clipboard working normally again.

And I noticed multiple of those entries in the clipboard:

04:33:59.504 VRDP: Guest requested clipboard format 0x00000000 that is not announced by VRDP clients. Ignoring the request!!!

vik2009, please attach a VBox.log file of a VM session when copy'n'paste didn't work.
