At some point yesterday, the clipboard on my VM stopped working. The VM is a Windows Server 200 Standard SP2 running in Windows VirtualPC, itself running on Windows7 Enterprise.
I can "copy" and "cut" text -- but nothing pastes (cut is particularly galling, since the target cannot be restored, except by Undo. Which does work).
right-click >> copy, both fail.
right-click >> paste fail -- the latter isn't even available,
paste is greyed-out.
I can copy and paste text from my host into the VM. I cannot copy and paste from the VM into the host.
I've run ProcMon filtered down to
clip.exe and nothing appears.
(this also appears to be the case in my host machine; apparently clip.exe is not the main clipboard)
However, when I pipe
dir | clip from the shell, I do get entries. (but the output is not available via paste).
Again, nothing that jumps out at me.
I've rebooted the VM several times, disabled, and re-enabled integration features.
I've checked the event log, but don't see anything significant (mostly about network printers).
