Regression: Support for middle mouse button (3rd button)

Reported by: Sundowner Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 5.0.20
Keywords: mouse, button, double click Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows



I have a 5 button + scroll wheel mouse (Evoluent VerticalMouse 4 USB) and I want to use the middle (3rd) mouse button or scrollwheel as doubleclick in my guest system. Before VirtualBox 5.0 (versions 4.3.x) that was no problem and the middle mouse button was detected. I use the 3rd party software "X-Mouse Button Control" ( to assign mouse buttons to functions, but in VirtualBox 5.0.x the middle mouse button is only detected as left mouse button. Same goes for the scroll wheel.

The USB filter for the mouse does not work either, besides this is not an option for me because I want to use the mouse in the host and guest system. Is there a solution?

VirtualBox 5.0.20 r106931 with installed Extension Pack Host: Windows 7 SP1 64Bit Guest: Windows 7 SP1 64Bit, also tried with Windows XP SP3 32Bit
