clipboard not sharing between OSX host and w2k guest?

Postby jrv » 16. Sep 2007, 20:09

VirtualBox 1.4.1-beta2, host OSX 10.4.10, guest Windows 2000, no apps installed other than the RDP client and all Windows Update fixes.

clipboard sharing does not seem to work, even with client tools installed. VB is set to bidirectional sharing.

Is this just not in the beta yet?

I just set up a new config for a user here, didn't want to shell out the extra money for Parallels/VMWare because they only use it for their Bible software, so the key feature was to run the software and copy stuff back and forth. I was surprised when the clipboard stuff wasn't working at all from what I could tell, but at least for now they can run their software. ;)

Hopefully in beta3 or a future release it will work. This was an XP SP2 install with all up-to-date Microsoft patches and the client tools installed.
