    Copy and Paste fails over Terminal Services



      Copy and Paste fails over Terminal Services


      FileMaker Pro


      10 and 11

      Operating system version

      Windows XP and 7

      Description of the issue

      Running a Windows Server 2008 64-bit machine and have FileMaker Pro 11 client installed on this machine and are running this as a RemoteApp for clients connecting over Terminal Services.

      Copy and paste works erratically, usually failing after a couple of paste operations, often not working at all - both within FileMaker and when copying content from local apps.

      Basically looks like FileMaker's implementation of the clipboard is not quite right and causes clipboard failure somewhere along the line. This has long been an isse with FileMaker over TS.

      Interestingly running this RDC RemoteApp connection on Mac OSX, the clipboard works OK, but on Windows XP and Windows 7 it fails.

      Same problem with FM10.

      Please get in touch if you need more info - would be good to get this sorted out finally.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Set up a 64-bit Windows Server 2008 (not R2), install FM 10 or 11 and set it up as a RemoteApp, then connect to that remote system from an XP or Win 7 machine. Create a database and try copy and paste - it will fail after a couple of test copy and pastes


      NONE - this is a critical issue for anyone running FileMaker over TS
