Copy and Paste conflicts with VMware fusion Copy and paste



I don't know if it is a problem in VMware, Teamviewer or MacOS.

If I have enabled copy and paste on VMware and Teamviewer, and I copy a file in one Guest OS, and would like to paste to another location on the small Guest OS, or another Guest OS or even to the host, VMware Fusion and Teamviewer freezes.

When I Force quit VMware fusion "Virtual Machine Library", Teamviewer "unfreezes". I can then restart VMware fusion

If I Force quit Teamviewer nothing happens, I still have to force quit Fusion.

has anyone else experienced this ?

    Hi @agerbo60 

    Could you explain in a simple manner how are you using VMware with Teamviewer and MacOS? The setup between them.

    Could you add a screenshot here?

    Thank you

    I have vmware fusion on my host macbook pro and teamviwer as well.

    And I have a connection to one remote machine via teamviewer

    When I copy a file in one of my guest os's in fusion both fusion and teamviwer is freezing.

    I dont have a screenshot now.

    Could you please provide one screenshot before and after the freezing, to make things completely clear?

    Remember to delete your ID and password and/or email before upload it.

    I had the exactly same problem,

    Mac OS 10.5.4

    VMWare Fusion 11.5.3

    Teamviewer 15.4.4445

    I copied a file inside my windows 10 VM then the two apps freezed, a small mac OS copying window also freezed, until I forced killed Teamviewer. This happened twice today, on the same scenario.
