Cut and PAste not working in VMWare Workstation 16 Pro

I know there was a thread about this in Workstation 15 Pro, and there were several suggested fix.

I now have this problem in VMWare  Workstation 16 Pro, but it recently started without any obvioius trigger.

Enviiornment:

Host and Guest are both Windows 10 21H1 Build 19043.1237

VMWare Workstation 16 Pro 16.1.2 Build 179966106

Guest is encrypted

 

I checked the Guest Isolation checkbox settings in the GUI  and they are correct.  I cannot verify the contents of the VMX file since it is encrypted/

Repair/Reinstall Tools did not solve problem.

Repair/Reinstall Workstastion 16 PRo did not solve the problem.

with what type of copy and paste are you having problems (with all or only with text or files)?

Thank you for your note.

I am very familiar with the referenced article, and with this feature.  I have been using Workstation Pro ssince it was first introduced.

The problem exists for any copied item - test or pictures.

The  problem experienced most recently is with one sentencee of text.
