Mouse Without Browse is *BROKEN* after upgrading Win10 to latest. If you DRAG a file from a desktop to another, the file is copied, but the target Mouse Without Border process DIES (tray icon disappear, need to restart).

This was not happening before upgrading Win10 to 1607 !!!!

What was your solution?  FWIW I wasn't having a problem with 1607 but I am now having a problem with 1703 (Creator's Update).  Looks like it will be a firewall issue.  My client (the one with the mouse and keyboard) Surface RT says "An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine."

yesterday I did a factory reset on my Lumia 950xl in order to get rid of some possible interferences and tangles with lots of earlier insider builds. One of those problems did not go away, waking up the phone in combination with glance screen problems. Another problem introduced itself. The profile restoration on the phone picks up all previously installed active apps pretty good. This feature really matured in the right way in Windows 10 Phone build 10.0.15063.138 so no problem there!.

All apps were restored except one,... my nifty little app "Mouse without borders"
Looking for it in the Windows Store does not find anything :-(

I guess no more mouse?
condolences then...

We no longer support Windows Phone.

But if you have Windows 10 supposedly now you can use Continuum which has some of the same effects as MWB for phone.  For example, see Paul Thurrott's description of it

https://www.thurrott.com/mobile/windows-phone/62995/windows-10-mobile-tip-use-your-phone-with-an-hdt... 

(Google search for
    screencast windows phone 10 touch control continuum
)


Unfortunately I don't have a Windows Phone myself (only a Surface RT as an analog) so I can't say how accurate it is and I can't find anything official about it to know how much it may be used.

Oh.  Here we go, just refine the above search by adding  site:microsoft.com

Sorry, i cannot edit the typo on issue title. i was talking about that nice utility named MOUSE WITHOUT BORDER (not browser).

Also, in Win10, it stopped to copy clipboard from one host to another

Heh, I didn't notice the typo.  We're here, so it's right.

As for Clipboard maybe I don't know how to use it but I think it has never worked for my Surface RT.  On the other hand Shared Clipboard between Win10 and Surface RT via Remote Desktop Connection works great.  That's one of the reasons why I stopped using MWB.  Now ironically I am using MWB to type this because the latest W10 update has done some bizarre things to my mouse and keyboard performance.  How can both MWB and RDC perform better than W10 natively?

BTW did you notice that Answers thread I pointed to?  I think that is where current MWB support is going.

Well, it has worked "clipboard copy and file transfer" between a Win7 and Win10 (first release) for months. Both file share (unfortunately single file only) and clipboard share, stopped suddently to work after upgrading Win10 to 1607 !!
I have opened firewall ports, run both as administrator... nothing.
The strange thing is that clipboard works FROM Win7 TO Win10, but not viceversa.
At the other side, if i drag a file from Win10 to Win7 it works, if i drag from Win7 to Win10, the file get copied, but the tray icon on win10 disappear (maybe MWB commit suicide for an internal crash). Thus, i suppose this nifty tool *NEED FIXES* for Win10 compatibility.

This below is the error i got from the minilog on Win10 instance (that crashed after a dragdrop):
