Yes! I could never find an answer or fix for this issue. However, I discovered that if I disconnected after logon, then immediately reconnected, the mouse was no longer stuck. Go figure.
Unfortunately, the same problem exists in Windows 10, and now the workaround doesn't help. Fortunately I found this experimental setting, which only works on the Horizon View 3.4 client:
KEY: HKCU\software\vmware, inc.\vmware vdm\client
Value: DWORD: EnableSessionDPIScaling 1
1 = on
0 = off
It does slightly reduce the resolution, but the scaling is finally correct, and most of all I can read the screen without a magnifying glass.
Just wanted to chime in that...that I enabled the group policy so we can edit the font size's and once i'm able to edit them... the second i hit apply, the mouse shoots up to the top left corner and screws everything up. If I disconnect and reconnect it's fine but that isn't acceptable to me.
Found the solution by adding a registry entry:
After this is set on a parent image and recomposed (or reboot if you're setting this on a persistent desktop), there were no more mouse pointer jumps after changing the font/UI scale.
This was actually listed in KB here - not exactly the problem listed in KB, but it's similar enough:
Awesome, thanks! I'll give this a try!
Has anyone tried this on Windows 10 with any success? The below article says that the key should be in a different place. I tried adding the key in both places on the base image and ran into a situation where non admins were logged off immediately after logging in (random, I know). I plan to try one key at a time tomorrow.
