Binary File Through Clipboard

Need to transfer a binary file to a locked-down machine that you access through Windows Remote Desktop?

In my case, I was lucky enough that the machine has WinZip on it. WinZip extracts uuencoded files. First I extracted the file on my local machine:

  1. Download a free uuencode utility
  2. UUEncoded the binary file
  3. Open the encoded file in Notepad
  4. Copy its contents into the clipboard

Then I recreated the file on the destination machine:

  1. Open Notepad on the destination machine
  2. Past the contents into Notepad
  3. Saved the file with a .uue extension
  4. Extract it again with WinZip
