CHS v2.39.0 portable on VM
« on: February 04, 2017, 05:58:19 AM »

Hi there,
It seems that CHS portable (v.2.39) when 'installed' on VM does not capture the clipboard from the host-pc.

So,
on host-pc - select text, copy (ctrl-c)
go to VM
open any editor: paste (ctrl-v)
text is pasted.

However, nothing is in CHS on VM.

Within VM CHS works fine, so, select the same text in the above editor in VM
ctrl-c  it gets into CHS alright.

Just for your info.

Why would you expect it to? Without special techniques it's pretty hard to see keystrokes on a VM host from inside a VM. The fact ctrl-c/ctrl-v outside to inside a VM and the other way around works is because the vendor explicitly implemented that. It does not mean any keystroke is shared, in fact it would make the VM totally unusable if all host-keystrokes would also end up in the VM.

Sorry for the delay... Have been busy with other matters.

As for the above: other clipboard managers do this.
Some test - ArsClip in VM - copied your text above from webbrowsers on host pc.
