We provide a hosted application to our customers and have recently moved away from Citrix to RDS. Since then we have had multiple customers (and I have personally experienced this myself) reporting that when copy-pasting from their local desktop into our application over RDS, the values are intermittently being pasted in twice (using the 'CTRL' + 'V' on the keyboard).

In terms of frequency, I was performing some configuration in a customer's system last week and I'd say every 10th value I pasted, would go in twice (roughly speaking). But then on other days, it doesn't seem to happen at all. My keyboard is in perfect working order and this only happens when accessing our application in the RDS environment, this issue was not present via Citrix.

My local environment is Windows 10 and we run Windows Server 2016 Datacenter in our RDS environment.

I've done some general Googling, but nothing seems to fit. I'm doing some further testing today to see if the issue presents itself when RDP'ing directly onto one of the servers (rather than logging into our application), but was just wondering if anyone had experienced anything similar?

Thank you
