View Full Version : Vmware help

7th October 2008, 02:02 AM
Hi guys,

I'm a bit lost after installing vmare. Initially i was using the trial free version. Everything seems to work fine. After purchasing the license, did an install. All seems working fine except that my mouse trackpad does not work in vmware. Tried looking around in preferences, but could not find anything to do with the trackpad on the laptop. any ideas? i'm kinda desperate, i need to install MYOB on the lappie soon.

Got the tools installed?

You need to click inside the window before it will work, usually.

I have never had to do anything special with the mouse trackpad to make VMWare Fusion work. When booting an operating system, or when you haven't installed the VMWare tools in the windows guest OS the mouse will be 'trapped' by VMWare. You need to press Ctrl-Command (it might be option command) to release the mouse from the guest OS.

Otherwise contact VM Ware support.
