    Copy/cut functions not working

    VirtualKelly
      After installing updates, my copy/cut functions are no longer working and I get the error message, "OpenClipboard Failed." I can't seem to find the updated files to remove them. Should I uninstall and reinstall? This sucks.

      Need help.

          Have you rebooted? More often than not that will fix it.

            Found an old solution for version 8 even though I have CS3 and it worked.

            You can try this simple fix -

            Quit DW.

            Find this file -

            C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver
            8\Configuration\WinFileCache-*.dat

            (these folders are normally hidden - you may have to use Explorer > Tools >
            Folder Options to unhide them)

            and delete it.

            Restart DW. Works better?
