As Winston said, you are working with a WLM build that is very old - in
I recall that there was a build that had a problem with copy'n'paste. As I
recall, it wouldn't work using a mouse-click, but it worked fine if we
highlighted the selection and then used <Ctrl>+C, <Ctrl>+V, the standard
Windows keystrokes for Copy and Paste. Have you tried those?
But you really should download (for free) the current build (8.0.8089.0726)
WLM - and any other of the Windows Live Essentials (Messenger, Photo
Gallery, etc.) that you might want - from: http://download.live.com
The copy'n'paste problem that you are having was fixed a few builds ago.
