Description wdehoog 2011-11-03 16:34:40 UTC
When copying text within MonoDevelop using Ctrl-C or the menu it does not appear on the windows clipboard. It can be pasted within Monodevelop but not in another application.

I start Monodevelop like this:

PATH=c:\windows;c:\tools;c:\windows\system32;C:\Program Files\GtkSharp\2.12\bin;C:\Program Files\Mono-2.10.6\bin
"\Program Files\MonoDevelop\bin\MonoDevelop.exe"

Works for me. (Windows 7/.NET4)

Which windows & .NET version do you use ?
Comment 2 wdehoog 2011-11-04 03:46:38 UTC
I am running Windows XP Prof and have all the .Net runtimes installed. Unfortunately I do not know how I can check which one is used to run MonoDevelop.exe.

I copied this from the About Box. Please note that copying using the clipboard did not work here either. I had to paste it within (monodevelop) into a file and save it.

Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-11-04 06:45:01 UTC
It looks like you somehow got another GTK+ in your PATH. We ship 2.16.0, not 2.24.0.
Comment 4 wdehoog 2011-11-04 07:46:56 UTC
You are right. The libgtk dll from mono-2.10.6 was loaded. After reinstalling Gtk# using the installer from the Monodevelop website pasting into another application works.

Thanks for looking into this.
