Just installed Password Agent 2.3.0 Beta 1. I was very eager to switch to this updated version due to the new support for the CF_CLIPBOARD_VIEWER_IGNORE data type. In fact, I so strongly wanted this feature that I switched from ClipCache Plus to ClipMate 6 (http://www.thornsoft.com/), because only the latter utility supports the CF_CLIPBOARD_VIEWER_IGNORE data type. To me, the switch was worth the $25 USD I paid.

However, upon copying user IDs and passwords from within Password Agent 2.3.0 Beta 1, I see that ClipMate is still capturing this sensitive data. Some notes:

* I assume that support for CF_CLIPBOARD_VIEWER_IGNORE is always enabled in PA, since I see no option to enable or disable it.

* In ClipMate 6, I have the option to "Pay Attention To Clipboard Viewer Ignore Flag" enabled (which is the default anyway).

* Since the author of ClipMate was the one who developed the CF_CLIPBOARD_VIEWER_IGNORE data type in the first place, and since ClipMate 6 is non-beta, I am assuming that PA beta is at fault, rather than ClipMate.

I hope this helps with the beta development.

It seems the ClipMate 6 itself misbehaves . I'll notify the developer about this. Their older CF_CLIPBOARD_VIEWER_IGNORE demo application at http://www.thornsoft.com/dist/techsupport/ignoredemo.zip seems to work OK.

The developer of ClipMate said he will look into this issue and lets hope the problem will get fixed in next ClipMate update. Seems the feature is little used in ClipMate so people have not noticed it does not work in latest version(s)...
