    Thank goodness for this tool! I moved to Kaseya recently and missed this option because we have very complex passwords. Working well so far. Just wish they had a Mac version.

    I use this every single day, all day long, and not just in RDP and KRC, I use it everywhere. Great time-saver, thank you! Larry

    If you're looking for a similar AutoHotkey-based version of this, the source code is located here: http://community.kaseya.com/xsp/f/31/p/23124/105141.aspx#105141

    The tools works nice but (correct me if i'm wrong) if I copy a password, for example: G$n94pJ+L{x2k3! , then paste it with F3 is comes out like , G$n94pJ+Lx . Is this a bug or a local problem?

    We have noticed similar behavior on certain special characters. This is a bug - but I haven't seen this ever get updated and am not sure if the original developer is maintaining this...

    Hi guys, it's true the actual developer is no longer with us, so there is no new version in the works. That being said, we've been using this for a long time and I've never seen the same behaviour on our systems using this tool..
    So, I tested the example that was included and have seen the same happening, so I'm not sure but we might not be using the { character in our passwords. That seems to be causing this. I'll see if I can get another developer to look at this, but I'm not 100% sure this code is all that flexible. If I remember correctly a simple tool was used for a quick and dirty solution....
    I hope to update this later this week.

    Here's a great example of what the current bug can do and why we've had to use the tool either on a limited basis or avoid it:

    Copied Text: [[{{{sf3234324~!~}}}]]]
    F3 Paste Output: [[{~}}}]]]

    Appreciate you looking at it!

    If you take a look at the one that Brian linked to above it is another version of basically the same thing that you can take a look at the source code.... However I I'd be interested to know if you have the same info with the older KRC remote control. I found that I often have issues with it when using live connect or the new KRC from live connect, but that it works just fine in the older KRC.
    The difference appears to be some type of keyboard bug in KLC as I've often found that when it pastes it doe so in the opposite case, etc making it appear that the Shift key is stuck on, and other times it acts like the CTRL or ALT key is stuck,

    Also one more comment in addition to the above, I used the one sourced by Brian above and changed the Hotkey to F9 personally because I didn't want it robbing the F3 hotkey which is used for Search in a lot of apps.

    The control keys issues in remote connecting and control of a machine are a well documented Kaseya 'feature' at the moment. There's not much this tool can do about that and I haven't seen the issue crop up on our environment. We don't use the new Live Connect that much, and are waiting for a stable release (which Kaseya is working on... for a long time).
    I'm waiting to hear back from a programmer and confirm this as fixed. I'm sure the tool Brian posted is a good replacement, you can use. As promised I'll update this when I get a confirmed fix....

    We have noticed a larger issue, when we have several techs in our VSA, if they have KLC instances open and one copies a password, URL or anything into his clipboard, it seems to populate to other techs clipboard with a KLC instance open.  I don't know if this is a function of KLC or this Password Paste add-in.

    Hi Michael, I don't think it's specific to this add in. We are not using this adding but have randomly had the same thing happen to techs ever since 9.3.

    It's been a while, but over the holidays a new version was made of our tool, unfortunately the programmer introduced different characters not being pasted. So, ít's back to the drawing board and I expect a 'good' version soon and will update the comments and version of the tool....

    Since Brian included a working example achieving the same thing, you should use his link to work around the issue, at least for now.

    Hi!  This is an awesome tool.  We have several clients with extremely complex password requirements so this alleviates us from having to type them in manually.  I would love to see a version cleaned up that doesn't miss characters or anything like's being reported, although I haven't had any issues personally yet.

    Many thanks!

    Our programmers have been ignoring this tool, since there is too much work and not enough hands on deck.So, the tool stands as it is and I'm glad to hear it helps some of you... I'll keep pushing for an update and will post any news I have...
