Default "The clipboard is busy"

Hello there Mary,

I tried that. It didn't work.

This is on a network across three sites. It is happening on all stations across one site, and all students logging on at that site.
The first time they log on, they receive the error. If the clear the clipboard, it works after that. If you choose "paste special", it works fine.
Although you get the error in Publisher, you can paste anywhere else without a problem
I've checked on the Net. This seems to be a known problem all over, with pasting into publisher from the Internet or from Outlook express.

Have you started the clip book service? Sometimes the clipboard will work once or
twice without starting the clip book and then fail.
Open the control panel, open Administrative Tools", double-click services, scroll
down to clipbook, right-click, properties, Startup type, Automatic, Service status
started.

You can drag the clipboard icon to the desktop for easier emptying. It is in the
WINNT folder, system32, it is called clipsrv.exe
