Repair Clipboard Chain 2.0.1

The new version has been published and available for download from Citrix support:

It allows to repair clipboard chain for individual ICA sessions:

C:\>RepairCBDChain.exe "Sent Items - Microsoft Outlook - \\Remote"
C:\>RepairCBDChain.exe "Weekly report - Message - \\Remote"

You might also repair individual RDP sessions if you specify the window class as the second parameter although I didn’t test this.

MessageHistory tool shows the following RDP client window on my x64 Windows 2003 Server responsible for receiving clipboard change notifications:

HWND: 0x00000000000318A8
Class: "RdpClipRdrWindowClass"
Title: ""
20:31:59:562 S WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD (0x308) wParam: 0x31986 lParam: 0x0

The command line should be:

C:\>RepairCBDChain.exe "" "RdpClipRdrWindowClass"

Inside RDP session on Windows XP the following rdpclip.exe window receives clipboard change notifications:

HWND: 0x0004003A
Class: "CBMonitorClass"
Title: "CB Monitor Window"
19:36:57:484 S WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD (0x308) wParam: 0x50142 lParam: 0x0

and the command line should be:

C:\>RepairCBDChain.exe "CB Monitor Window" "CBMonitorClass"
