Aha! Copy & Paste works from Win 7 machine to XP machines. But not from XP machines to the Win 7 machine!

This issue is occurring with my setup at work.
I can copy paste from XP to Windows 7.
I am unable to copy paste from Windows 7 to XP.

I am using version 2.1.2.1024

Are you running the same version in both machines?

When copying a text in your Win7 machine, do you see the blinking blue dot on the program system tray icon? (of both machines)

I see the blinking dot, but a notificatino buble also pops up and says "Mouse Without Borders, connecting to 'computer name'.

Then after a while a timeout error displays, but MWB continues to work :/

I'm also unable to copy from my XP to Win7 machine. From Win7 to XP works fine. I am running version 2.1.2.1024 on both. I see the blue dot mentioned when I copy on my Win7 machine, but not on my XP. Anything to fix this? My XP machine is my primary, wondering if Chris is using Win7 as the primary. If I restart MWB on my XP machine then it will work again for a while.

I can drag & drop from a Windows XP (local machine) to a Windows Vista machine but not the other way around. Both with 2.1.2.1212 and both with exceptions on Windows firewall. Any way around this?
Thanks.

I have been using Mouse without Borders for months. After a recent Win10 update the copy paste stopped workiing in ONE direction. I can copy from my WIn7 PC to Win10 but not the other way around. The Win10 copy buffer is broken.

Found the fix combination:

After launch restart the Helper module.
> taskkill /IM MouseWithoutBordersHelper.exe /F 
> cd Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Garage\Mouse without Borders\  
> MouseWithoutBordersHelper.exe 

ALSO: Turn off the UAC. At least if you are mixing WIn7 and Win10.
