Windows XP guest with additions enabled: Remote Desktop Connect pointer is offset and rotated

Reported by: Gary Humenuk Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 3.1.2
Keywords: "remote desktop" pointer Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


If I have guest additions enabled and use Microsoft built in Remote Desktop Connection from my Windows XP guest to a regular Windows XP machine the pointer is rotated 90 degrees and is offset from the actual pointer position.

If I disable guest additions before connecting the pointer is normal.

Host: HP XW6600, Fedora 12 updated Jan 10 2010 Guest: Windows XP SP3 no updates Remote machine: Windows XP SP2 VirtualBox version: 3.1.2.r56127

It turns out this has nothing to do with remote desktop. I found the same wrong pointer offset with Windows 2003 Service Pack 1 guest. The problem appears to be with unpatched Windows 2003.

I also observed the exact same bug with rdesktop to a Windows Server 2003 remote machine. This appears to be specific to Fedora. I happen to have dual boot with Ubuntu 9.10 and this bug does not happen when I am booted into Ubuntu 9.10.

I just tried this with KDE under Fedora 12 and I do not see this bug. I will open a Fedora 12 bug against Gnome Desktop. I am a bit worried that this bug will appear with Gnome under Ubuntu 10.4.

This is becoming absurd. It appears this problem happens because I have a second monitor that is rotated but only when the remote session or virtual machine is displayed on the normal monitor. When displayed on the rotated monitor the pointer is normal. Of course, it did not happen under Ubuntu 9.10 because I had the proprietary graphics driver. At least I now know to open the bug against the nouveau video driver.

Although this is not solved, this ticket can be closed as it is not a VirtualBox bug.
