VMWare tools breaks mouse on Windows Server 2016 essentials client.

Jump to solution

With a clean install of Windows Server 2016 essentials into a Fusion 11.5.7 client my mouse works fine.

Once I install VMWare tools in the client and reboot, things go wrong.

cntl-alt-del via menu will start the login process and the mouse still works for switching user or repositioning the cursor in the login field until I actually log in.

Once I am logged in the mouse is dead.

 

Based on vaguely similar reports in other client OS's I've deleted and recreated the VMWare fusion entry Privacy>Accessibility and then rebooted.  

But it hasn't helped.

 

Any ideas ?  Thank you

 

Alex

Hi Alex,

 

Have you already tried with gaming options in VMware Fusion=>Preferences=>General=>Gaming ?

I don't normally worry about gaming controls on a Windows Server, but for whatever reason it had defaulted to auto,

Switching to never resolved the problem.

 

Thank you.
