Win 7 Guest Mouse Integration not working with Aero Themes

Reported by: MikeP ITC Owned by:
Component: WDDM Version: VirtualBox 4.3.16
Keywords: Mouse Capture Aero Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux



If this is answered somewhere I appologise but I have searched for a couple of days and tried every option I can think of. This has also been an issue for me Since Fedora 20 release and hence al VB versions since then (didnt realy use it much before)

Guest: Windows 7 64 bit SP1 Ultimate Edition 2 CPU , 4gb mem, 256mb Graphics, 40gb HDD Additions and WDDM 3D support installed and enabled Aero Theme enabled Intelppm disabled processors disabled

Host: Linux Fedora 20 Core i7 Haswell graphics 32gb Core Mem 500 GB SSD Gnome 3 Desktop Dual Monitor VirtualBox _ Additions 4.3.16 r95972


All works well except the cursor/mouse is not captured in the guest. Mouse X/Y and possible cursor change is only seen by guest OS on a mouse click. All is then updated correctly. Pain is mouse move and mouseover have no affect as no events seem to be being sent for the mouse move to the Guest OS

Work Arounds:

Turn off mouse Integration and all works as expected ( Not a great user experience ) Run Windows 7 Basic Theme. Once again all works but a poor Windows experience

All help appreciated and happy to debug etc.

Thanks in advance
