    Vista Clipboard???

    how do you open Vista Clipboard, in XP you typed clipbrd to open
    and view the contents of the Clipboard, there is no clipbrd in Vista,
    only clip and RDPclip, so how can you open and view the contents of it.

    Re: Vista Clipboard???

    Hi Mr. DosFan--

    There was a way to put the clipboard on the start menu and see it and use
    it in XP. I tried this in Vista (adding these keys to the reg, and no
    dice). No clipboard showed on the cpl. I think it's meant to be invisible
    in Vista.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4de05bc9-69f6-4bfc-8094-5e1069f2f51f}]
    @="Clipboard"
    "InfoTip"="Starts the Clipboard"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4de05bc9-69f6-4bfc-8094-5e1069f2f51f}\DefaultIcon]
    @="%SystemRoot%\\\\System32\\\\clipbrd.exe,0"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4de05bc9-69f6-4bfc-8094-5e1069f2f51f}\Shell]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4de05bc9-69f6-4bfc-8094-5e1069f2f51f}\Shell\Open]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4de05bc9-69f6-4bfc-8094-5e1069f2f51f}\Shell\Open\command]
    @="clipbrd.exe"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{4de05bc9-69f6-4bfc-8094-5e1069f2f51f}\ShellFolder]
    "Attributes"=dword:00000030

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{4de05b c9-69f6-4bfc-8094-5e1069f2f51f}]
    @="Add Clipboard to the Control Panel"


    What is Clipboard?

    The Clipboard is a temporary storage area for information that you have
    copied or moved from one place and plan to use somewhere else. You can
    select text or graphics and then use the Cut or Copy commands to move your
    selection to the Clipboard, where it will be stored until you use the Paste
    command to insert it elsewhere. For example, you might want to copy a
    section of text from a website, and then paste that text into an e-mail
    message. The Clipboard is available in most Windows programs.

    You can copy or move information such as text and pictures between files and
    programs in Windows using a temporary storage space called the Clipboard.
    The Clipboard is not visible, so keep in mind that even though you use the
    Clipboard to copy and paste information between files, you will never
    actually see the Clipboard when you do so.

    If you want to see the contents of the Clipboard in Vista, copy the
    CLIPBRD.EXE application from XP, and place it in the following directory...

    C:\Windows\System32\clipbrd.exe

    You can then create a shortcut and/or shortcut key to it. Or type the
    name into START|RUN.

    Dev--

    Yep does the trick and you can access it from run or the Control Panel in
    Vista. I only used it in XP when once in a while something would get stuck
    on the clipbard and you couldn't copy and paste until you got rid of it.

    Vista Clipboard???

    Dev,


    I located the clipbrd.exe file in WinXP. I then copied the file to my Windows Vista\System32 folder. I then created a shortcut on my Desktop.

    It kind of works but before it opens I get a pop-up window Titled:
    Clipbrd.exe-Entry Point Not Found.

    In the body of the window is the following info:

    The procedure entry point SdbGetAppCompatDataSize could not be located in the dynamic link library apphelp.dll.

    Any idea what the error message is about and how do I eliminate it?

    Thanks.

    Working well here, in the same location. Been many months since I
    installed it, and do not recall any special circumstances.

    Try running it in the compatibility mode, which is how it is here...

    Right-click the C:\Windows\System32\clipbrd.exe file, then click the
    COMPATIBILITY tab. Check the "run this program" box, then click the
    little arrow to the right of the horizontal window, and make the change
    to XP (Service Pack 2).

    I did learn right after running Vista that they do NOT support the Help files on older software.

    They have a fix but I couldn't get it to work so I''ve contacted the software companies to see if they have any updates. NOT YET, but working on it.

    Perhaps that is what this error message pertains to?

    Thanks.

    Well, I've still had no luck in installing the GenuineCheck.exe that Microsoft wants me install before I can install what I hope is a patch for the lack of support of previous software Help Files in Vista.

    Has anyone had occasion to use this?

    Also, after reading some of the posts I am wondering what the Snipping Tool is.

    Yes that's the update I tried to install. I just tried again and got the same message. "The update does not apply to your system."

    So, I just let it go. I use both Netscape and FireFox. No luck.

    I do the same with clipbrd.exe in Windows\System32 folder and just type in
    clipbrd in the Run Dialog box and it seems to run ok, i have not had the
    errors yet you talk of, strange. Have you tried just typing clipbrd in the
    run box?.

    I'll try the other Clipboard option.

    My PC is only a week old and was purchased at Circuit City. It is an eMachine and Vista Home premium was installed. I'm sure it is the usual OEM software which all of my Windows OS's have been. Besides that Vista has already updated several patches.

    This file that I want to download requires as usual this Genuine deal.

    To tell the truth I don't even remember what the messages were or what transpired. I've had way too many problems going on and was trying to work at them all at the same time.

    I'll work on that again tomorrow and check back if you don't mind.

    Part of it can be that since I am not familiar with Vista and can't see certain things that are going on I may simply not be patient enough. Perhaps it takes longer than I remember.

    Sadly I am on Dial-up and I need a medal for that. <G>
