USB Mouse freezes under Win. Vista x64 Ult. as soon as Virtualbox is started

Reported by: ManDay Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: USB
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.2 Keywords: usb mouse freeze windows
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Windows


Regardless whether an actual VM is set up or started. It occurs as soon as I start the main program. Closing VB doesn't help it after it happend once, unless I unplug the mouse from the USB-Socket and replug it. Passing that procedure as long as VB is still up running doesn't work.

From time to time it works. Randomly. And if it worked once, it usually works onto the next reboot of the hosting OS.

Then it looks like a VBox USB host driver problem. You can try to uninstall VBox (will not remove your VMs) and reinstall *without* USB support.

It's seems that you can evade this isse by not moving the mouse pointer the very moment Virtualbox is starting up. If you don't move the mouse unless the starting process of the main program has been terminated you will probably not sustain any freezing.

Could you try 1.6.0?

I'm having a similar problem. After installing Fedora 8 on my vista ult. x64 host, it will boot up and then give me the infamous "virtualbox has stopped responding" and closes out. Like ManDay mentioned, it does seem more stable if you don't touch the mouse until the GUI has loaded, but it still fails shortly after. Trying to uninstall the app doesn't work. Each time I try, I receive a message window telling me that it "cannot uninstall the program because there is a problem with the script." Is anyone else having this problem?

This is still an issue in VB 2.0.2. With host Ubuntu 8.0.4 the XP guest has still problems with a (wireless) USB mouse. After unmarking the USB Mouse in the VB USB-settings and a restart of XP the mouse is working.
