Terminal Server TSAC: Copy and Paste Fil

By cwunder3 ·
I am trying to copy and paste files during a terminal session from the server to my workstation using the Remote Desktop Web Connection. I followed the MS article http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/tools/hotfixes/rdpclip-o.asp about RDPCLIP.exe. When I try to copy and paste I get an error that says Cannot copy file: Cannot read from source file or disk. I'm not sure what I am missing here. I thought maybe someone would have a suggestion. Thanks

Copy the intended file using the edit menu from the terminal server or the remote desktop. Browse your workstation from the network neighborhood of the terminal server/remote desktop and look for the folder where you want the file copied (make surethat you have a shared folder in your workstation where you want the filed copied), then paste the file in that folder.
This should work because I just tried it as I am writing this answer.

if your trying to move an editable file (word-ppt-excl-etc...). During your TS sessions open the file, Select all, Copy, Minimize your RDC window, open 'word' for example...and paste the content. But if your moving other type files...good luck...we havent been able to find a solution for this.

I am attempting to move files, not just content. I was able to move one executable file from a terminal session to my local desktop. The problem was, it had renamed the file c with no file extension. I renamed the file to its' original name and it worked. I tried the same with a shortcut, and it failed. Maybe I don't have the right permissions somewhere?
