Users may experience a malfunctioning clipboard chain (when they cannot copy and paste anymore between a local application and a session or between different applications in a session). This occurs when a third-party program incorrectly inserts itself in the Windows clipboard chain on a local workstation or within a session.
The RepairCBDChain utility temporarily restores clipboard functionality. The order is restored by moving the ICA client to the beginning of the clipboard chain. If the offending application is launched after this repair utility has restored the clipboard order, the clipboard functionality may become corrupted again.
Download the executable file to a local workstation and run it from a command prompt or from within a session.
How to Use RepairCBDChain
Run the RepairCBDChain utility on your workstation and/or inside the session desktop.
If it doesn’t repair the clipboard try repairing individual ICA sessions by specifying ICA session window title, for example:
C:\>RepairCBDChain.exe "Sent Items - Microsoft Outlook - \\Remote"
C:\>RepairCBDChain.exe "Weekly report - Message - \\Remote"
Note: If switch -gui is used as the last parameter then the message stating that clipboard functionality is repaired is not displayed; only the diagnostic message appears if there are any errors.
RepairCBDChain.exe [Title [Class]] [-gui]
The window title and class are optional. If you specify the title, but omit the class, the tool assumes that the window belongs to the ICA client.
To uninstall this utility, delete the executable file.
