How do I fix the VirtualBox Clipboard
Posted on 2011-09-09
We have several virtual systems hosted in Oracle VirtualBox 4.1.0 r73009. Users using these virtual systems are reporting multiple glitches with the Windows clipboard when the Virtual Clipboard is enabled via Guest Additions, even when the clipboard operations are taking place outside of the Virtual system.
The most common reported issue is that when multiple users are working with different virtual systems hosted by the same VirtualBox Manager, they have access to each other's clipboards. When a user signed in to a VirtualBox system through Remote Desktop uses the paste command, they get the last item copied to the clipboard by any other VirtualBox user, even if both the cut/copy and paste operations are outside of VirtualBox.
Anyone know of a way to fix this?
