Guest mouse not working

Reported by: tombcatz Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.2.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: OSX Server
Host type: Windows


Hello, i recently installed VirtualBox 4.2.0 [and its extension pack] in order to run an OSX mountain lion guest on it. My OS [host type] is Windows 7, SP1, 64bit. i have a logitech cordless set [keyboard+mouse]. the keyboard model is: mk700, the mouse model is: mx620.

whenever i try launching the virtual machine, and get to the boot screen, if i try clicking anywhere on the screen, i get promoted with a message about capturing the host mouse cursor. after clicking the "accept" button, the mouse cursor disappears and i cannot control the mouse, until i press the right control key to uncapture it. the keyboard is working, but the mouse is not recognized. since my set is connected via USB, i tried selecting the set in the USB devices list inside the VM, but whenever i choose the logitech cordless set, my keyboard and mouse stop responding within the VM, and the only way i can uncapture them is to physically remove the usb and plug it back again.

You have to enable the "absolute pointing device" in the VM settings.
