I am trying to use a program like autoit (download is free) to move the mouse cursor to a location on the screen. (Eg.: MouseMove(150, 150, 0)) If you enable "Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key" under Mouse Properties (Under the Pointer Options tab) and press control after executing a script using the command in the guest, it will show that the mouse has moved to the specified location in the guest. This is different from the actual location of the host cursor. If you make any movements to the host cursor, it will warp the guest cursor to the location of the host cursor. In other words, mouse movements are only one-way. If the mouse is moved within the guest, the host does not move the mouse accordingly.
I am using a Windows XP Guest with an Ubuntu 9.04 host and VirtualBox 3.0.2
