Copy and Paste is not working on my Remote Desktop Connection… what’s wrong?

17 Feb

Copy paste is not working from your local system(XP) to remote desktop ??

If you tried other trickes and no one working try this  

– One of the major reason

–> Client computer’s clipboard Book service is not running.

You can resolve this issue without disconnecting RDP or restarting client (user’s local ) system.

* TO do this you need administrative password of client computer.

* Take session of services (from your computer to user’s computer) which are running on client computer.

*trying to start Clipbook service ->> It depends on two more service Network DDE DSDM and Network DDE. Start both these services if clipbook service is not starting, after that try to start clipbook service (client computer remotely).
