comment Is it possible to paste the Windows clipboard in TightVNC
@Ramhound, @John - Ctrl-V is not working - I'm getting a ^ when I first press it, then a V. I also tried Insert, Shif+Insert and right-clicking.

comment How to run internal cmd command from the msys shell?
Process Monitor helped track down the issue. It is that msys will convert /c to c:\ ; it needs to be escaped: cmd //c mklink. The way these conversions are done is explained here.

comment How to run internal cmd command from the msys shell?
@NicoleHamilton, nope; I took @Maxiums' advice and ran Process Monitor, and as can be seen in the screenshot I attached, the issue is that msys converts /c to c:\ . The answer is to escape it, and run the command as cmd //c mklink.
