Issues while doing copy/paste in P4Merge

« Go Back



When using P4Merge, I cannot copy/paste text.


In P4Merge if you notice that you cannot paste the text after you have selected it and done a copy via control+c or edit/copy, you might be affected by an impeding registry entry and a dll.

NOTE: This solution has worked well to fix this P4Merge behavior, but we do not guarantee it's effect on other software you may have installed.

The registry entry is:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\Appinit_Dlls

and the value is:


This dll is a user mode executive module helper owned by Computer Associates
and located in c:\windows\system32\umxsbxexw.dll

If you remove the registry entry, the copy/paste feature will work with P4Merge.
