1) In the upper tabs some open virtual machine.
2) In the inventory the rest of virtual machines.
a) Open machines in 1).
b) I then open a shared virtual machine that was not listed on the inventory tabs.
This machine does not acquire the mouse nor the keyboard. You can not operate on it.
If at that moment I open another instance of vmware in empty, and active the virtual machine shared from the inventory, against, if that works correctly.
