Mouse cursor sometimes invisible when running an XP guest in VMware Workstation/Player: Invisible Mouse Cursor on Text Editors « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of Wiert stuff

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/30

The  RDP to VMware host running an XP guest: Invisible Mouse Cursor on Text Editors problem is not limited to RDP-ing into the VMware host, but also happens on some hosts themselves (including my ThinkPad W701 running Windows 7 x64).

This  VMware Communities: Invisible Mouse Cursor on Text Editors … thread (that has a different host configuration: Vista) comes up with 2 different solutions that both work:

  • Make your Windows XP mouse scheme the “Windows Black (system scheme)”
  • Put the Windowx XP video hardware acceleration one position below maximum.

Since less hardware acceleration also means far less performance, I’ve opted for the first solution.
