openClipboard Failed

Recommended Posts

I have been getting an error message on a new DELL laptop that I use for production CPU. As soon as I do CTRL+C I get the following message.

 

FAiled to get data from the clipboard (error -2147221940) openClipboard Failed)...

 

I have been looking in the forum but now topics on this yet...

 

Any ideas !

This sometimes happen if you have multiple instances of the production software open simultaneously. You can copy/paste without opening multiple instances by loading another show between Copy and Paste.

Ok so if I'm running a single show, would it be a RAM memory issue ? I just ran some tests after restarting to make sure that only one show was open end and it still is doing it. Maybe it as to do with another program messing with WO.

 

I will keep checking ! Is there a list of the error codes that would help me narrow it down ?

Yes, I would then suspect something else in your computer. Have you tyried WATCHOUT production software on anothe computer, to see if it solves this problem? I have not seen or heard of it except occasionally in the case I mention above.

Now the problem is fixed!

 

So it sounds like the problem was caused by some other software/configuration on your machine, which was resolved by re-installing the OS. ANy idea what that might have been, for the benefit of other users, should they run into this problem?

I read this post and the very next day I started getting the same messages. I am still on 5.2. and have only seen it in 64 bit environments. I have seen it in a number of my show set ups so it is not restricted to a particular show file. It hasn't caused me any problems but I am left wondering what it is actually trying to tell me. I haven't changed my system set up for over 6 months so quite sure I haven't caused this through a driver/update etc.

 I will report back if I find a reason/solution.
