Blank/empty output on a remote desktop connection

Post by happy5 » 03 Mar 18, 22:04


I run the enterprise version of Phrase Express from a USB drive. When using a remote desktop connection from my personal computer for work purposes (Windows 10), the text does not get pasted into the desired application. I can see the phrases as a preview and summon my custom forms, but there is no text output.

I had a similar problem before and this forum provided the solution viewtopic.php?f=146&t=15721&p=49123&hil ... top#p49123 (disable "paste text via Windows clipboard...", set paste method to "paste text via Keystroke simulation").

The same solution is not working. This remote desktop connection has all settings closed. I did check the "clipboard" box under the "Local resources" tab of Windows Remote Desktop Connection.

Any thoughts? The only other detail I should mention is that I'm using a "guest" account on my own laptop (no administrator privileges).

PhraseExpress must be installed within the RDP session.

Please post macro programming questions only in the forum.
