Ok, now I'm begging for help.
I installed Test74 this morning and I still can't get my sessions to
copy/paste to/from each other.
xwinclip should work as a seperate invocation following XWin.exe as long
as I remove -clipboard as a switch from XWin, right? I tried that and
it doesn't work either. XWin starts the xdmcp session fine but then
starting xwinclip gives me this:
UnicodeSupport - Windows 95/98/Me
Could not open display, try: 1, sleeping: 4
Could not open display, try: 2, sleeping: 4
Could not open display, try: 3, sleeping: 4
Failed opening the display, giving up
So for right now, I can't get xwinclip to work either as a stand alone
or as a switch on XWin.
p.s. xwinclip was working well from a build of last October so I know
