Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
- have Windows v.m. with Windows XP SP3, with bridged networking, connected to the common network.
- install VB additions 4.1.0 (but this has been observed with many older versions as well)
- connect to this virtual machine from another machine (can be VB host, or another machine) through the native Windows Remote Desktop, with Clipboard enabled in Local Resources, i.e. Windows Remote Desktop will provide bidirectional clipboard between the local session of the connecting machine and remote desktop session.
result: as soon as you are connected, the clipboard will stop working on both VB guest and connecting machine. Copy something, then paste, there will be no effect.
- on the virtual machine, kill process VBoxTray.exe
result: the clipboard is now working on both VB guest and connecting machine.
