Cannot connect Touchscreen display to VMWare Workstation


I have a touchscreen display that uses USB to transfer the touch inputs to my computer, and I am using Windows 7 both as host and guest system. The display does not need a driver, it is automatically detected by Windows 7 as a tablet PC device.

My problem is that I have found no solution to attach this screen to my VMWare: I don't see an entry in the statusbar of VMWare Workstation 9.0 allowing me to connect the device to the vmware (disconnetct from host), and it is also not recognized when the VM is active and has a focus, and I plug in the USB cable of the monitor.

What is the best way to attach my touchscreen display to my VMWare Workstation?
