v5.2.2 Shared Clipboard on Windows MS-Edge not working

Postby embee » 27. Nov 2017, 11:31

Host: CentOS7 64-bit 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64
VBox: Virtual 5.2.2r119230 (updated 2017/11/24)
Host: Windows 10 Edge (VBox Image MSEdge on Win10 (x64) Stable (16.16299) ; Source: developer dot microsoft dot com /en-us/ microsoft-edge/tools/vms/
RemoteBox: Version 2.4 (most recent)

Shared Clipboard used to work perfectly until recently. I've also checked a number of forums and reinstalled several versions (including 5.2.1 interim VBox-extpack) and went through all the generics of disabling, reinstalling and reloading most recent versions.

After a specific Kernel update or VirtualBox update, the shared clipboard functionality stopped working. With this the vbox-web service also failed to autostart but after removing VirtualBox5.1 and reinstalling this seem to be resolved.

Text-based copy & paste works, but when trying to copy & paste files over Oracle VRDP Extension pack interface the shared-clipboard just doesn't seem to action.
I've tried a previous kernel, other guest additions ISO files but cannot get it to work again.

VRDP works (ports 3394 - 3300) for specific hosts, have 2x Windows guests, 1x ubunto & 1x OpenWrt. Loaded Guest additions to Windows images only.

See attached zip file with details.

It has never been possible to copy and paste files. Only memory resident text and pictures are allowed (CF_TEXT and CF_DIB).

Thanks for the feedback - I'm almost sure it used to work.

No, there has never been any version of VirtualBox which could copy files via the clipboard. To copy files you must use drag and drop or shared folders.

All of these features require GAs in the guest of course.
