Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

Whenever I click inside the guest window, the mouse freezes and only the Host key releases it but then it is in host mode. Background: I upgraded from 3.1.6 to 3.2.4 on an installation with Win x64 host/Win XP 32 guests. I created a new Win XP 32 guest, installed Guest Additions 3.2.4 and everything seemed to be OK until I powered down the guest and started it up again. Then the guest became unusable with no mouse functionality. I uninstalled Guest Additions (via keyboard) - no improvement. Reinstalled GA - same. I then reinstalled VB 3.1.6 and GA 3.0.x - the guest is still unusable.

Thanks, my mouse was a USB trackball with PS/2 adapter. I changed it to USB connection, no luck. I uninstalled and reinstalled GA in PS/2 and USB connected mode, no luck. There are no USB filters no absolute pointing device is not checked.

A few other things I tried and did not work:

  • Created a new guest and attached the virtual HD
  • Exported the guest as an appliance and imported it back into 3.2.4
  • Imported the guest into VB 3.1.6
  • Created a guest in VB 3.1.6 and attached the virtual HD created in 3.2.4

Below is VBoxManage output and I attached the VBox Guest.log

Thank you.
