Bug: Remote Desktop for Mac release 10.9.7 appears to break all RDP connections where clipboard sharing is enabled

Mark Schwarz 0 Reputation points

To reproduce:  With clipboard sharing enabled, attempt to connect to one of several different Windows Server hosts from Remote Desktop for Mac. 


Expected: Connection to RDP works well.

Actual: The connection hangs indefinitely on "Configuring the remote PC".


Note that all of these worked daily for months at a time before the 10.9.7 release was live.  I connect from an M1 Mac (Sonoma 14.2.1) to a 4+ different Windows server instances, varying versions.  On Friday afternoon CT 2024-05-24 they all worked well.  After the release to my Mac, I'm turning off clipboard sharing to each one in order to be able to connect successfully.
