A while ago I told you about using the non-integrated mouse feature under Virtual PC (here http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2005/03/14/395625.aspx). Now it turns out that there is no easy way for a user to turn this feature on or off under Virtual Server. But never fear – Virtual Server does indeed support this feature just like Virtual PC does. If you need to turn off the mouse integration under Virtual Server – what you will need to do is to:
- Backup your current .VMC file (just to be safe)
- Open up the .VMC file in a friendly editor (I usually use notepad)
- Add the following data to the <integration/microsoft> section:
N.B. You need to add the mouse data to the *existing* <integration/microsoft> section – do not create a new <integration/microsoft> section.
And to re-enable mouse integration you should set the mouse value to ‘true’.
