MouseMove will not keep cursor at x,y position while in VM

4 posts in this topic

A simple enough command, MouseMove(0,0,50)

It works just as expected, my arrow moves to the top left of the screen, however once I grab the mouse and move it just a nudge, the cursor snaps right back to the original cords. The system is a winxp system running in vmware workstation.

I even tried to do a MouseClick("left",0,0) after a short delay but its still not working correctly.

On my XP notebook this works fine, just not in the VM. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Does a

MouseMove(20,20,100)
MouseClick("left", 20, 20, 1, 20)

work?

No. I have tried this also on win2k8 and it works there, its something to do with being in the vm but im not sure what.

Thanks.

Check VMWARE's mouse capturing options.

Also, I prefer VirtualBox :D
