After upgrading from 6.1.38 to 7.0.0 on a Windows 10 host, it seems to be working fine with a single-monitor Windows 10 guest VM, but not with a Windows 10 guest VM that has 3 monitors. It gets confused as to which monitor the mouse is clicking in, making it pretty much unusable. For example, I have the Windows task bar on the center monitor only, and when I try to click with the mouse pointer located over the Windows start button there, nothing happens. If I move the mouse pointer to the bottom left corner of the left monitor and click there, then the start menu opens on the middle monitor.
Also, when the mouse is in the main window the pointer looks good and stable (although it doesn't work for clicking in that window), but when I move it to one of the other windows then it gets jumpy and fuzzy.
I tried to disable 2 of the monitors from within Windows, but that was almost impossible with the mouse clicking on the wrong one.
Rolled back to 6.1.38 and all is hunky dory again.
I then disabled 2 of the 3 monitors while running in 6.1.38 before re-installing 7.0.0, and then the VM worked fine with just the one monitor. But when I then tried to re-enable a 2nd one, the issue came back.
