mouse integration with vbox addition 2.2 does not work (in windows xp guest ?)

Reported by: zebul6 Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 2.2.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


i had in one of my VM vbox addition 2.1.4 running. so, as i run vbox 2.2.0, i uninstalled those addition and installed the vbox addition 2.2.0. and then mouse integration stopped to work.

i tried several times to uninstall and reinstall the 2.2 addition and it changes nothing disable mouse integration is greyed out in Machine menu. and i had to click to use my mouse in the VM

i finally reinstalled the vbox addition 2.1.4 and mouse integration worked again.

i use archlinux (32 bits) host with windows xp pro 32 bits guest

Related problem: Same defect with Ubuntu 8.10 (64 bits) as host and Win2k Pro as guest. Also the problem goes worst with VRDP (same host but Win2K Server as guest), there are 2 pointers present and you never know which one is the real pointer.

I have exactly the same issues verbatim, running RHEL5.2 as a host and Windows XP as a guest. I'm going back to 2.1.4 right now..
