Hey,

I searched the forum but couldn't find anything related. The clipboard in the Bitcoin app 0.3.22 beta doesn't work at all - I can't copy a Bitcoin Address to clipboard either way:

- Ctrl+C after selecting it in the firld in the main window => empty clipboard
- clicking the "Copy to Clipboard" button throws an error message "Failed to put data on the clipboard (error -2147221038: setClipboard Failed)"
- same in the Address Book > Receiving tab.

Running Win7 Ultimate 64bit. Has anyone else come across this? I was looking forward to getting started with Bitcoin but this doesn't seem like a good start... manually typing long addresses out each time ain't fun Cheesy

Thanks.

EDIT: and while we're at it - choosing the "minimize to tray instead of taskbar" option doesn't work either. That results in no tray icon, but it does remove it from the taskbar - so there's now way to open the window again other than killing it from the Task Manager and launching new. Just thought I'd throw it in here as well - sorry if this is the wrong section.

Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

Check your computer first, this is what I get from my clipboad:

Maybe you have got some virus on your laptop which has locked your clipboard.

Thanks for the reply gongcheng. I don't have a virus or trojan... but you got me thinking and I checked my Comodo Firewall. Surprise, it had Bitcoin sandboxed, which apparently caused all of these errors. I added it to the trusted files and it looks like it's working fine now! Awesome. lol

Hope this helps others who may have this problem.
