Unable to copy/paste in RDP from Windows 7 system to 2003 server
Posted on 2014-01-31
I am logged into a Windows 7 system that is on a domain. I am hitting a 2003 server via RDP that is not on the domain. I am logging in as the Local Administrator on the 2003 server.
The server is not a full out Terminal Server (now RDS).
When I remote in I am unable to copy/paste files to the remote server. The "Paste" option is grayed out when I try and click on it. I can however, copy/paste raw text to Notepad etc.
I have been all over Google and all I have seen so far is the rdpclip.exe solution that does not work for me.
I have checked the local group policy and nothing is configured. I already went into my RDP settings on my workstation and made sure "Clipboard" is selected and I even tried going into Local devices and resources and selecting my drives for use during remote session. Still the "Paste" option is grayed out.
What it seems like to me is that the remote server is not reading or getting the content of my clipboard but I'm not sure why.
This only happens on this single remote server. All other 2003 and 2008 servers do not have this problem.
Any help would be great...
