Copy and Paste from Virtual PC has stopped working

Up until the last week I was able to copy and paste text from my virtual PC (VPC) to my host machine, however I tried it today with no success...it doesn't error it will just paste whatever is in the host machines buffer/clipboard rather than what I have selected and copied from the VPC.

Copy/Paste support is provided by the Virtual Machine Additions. Maybe you could try re-installing these?

"I found that the program rdpclip.exe was the culprit. I created a file called restart clipboard.bat on the XP desktop and run it after starting a VPC session.

The file contents are:

taskkill /im rdpclip.exe
start rdpclip.exe"
