Temporary forum to discuss issues and problems during a VirtualBox Beta or Release Candidate phase.

[FIXED] WDDM + Multi-Monitor = cursor disappears

Postby Technologov » 11. Jul 2011, 15:44

Host: Windows 7 x64 + VBox 4.1.0_BETA2 + NVIDIA GTX 560
Guest: Windows 7 x64 + GA 4.1.0_BETA2 + 2 vMonitors + WDDM drivers

After I install guest additions w/ WDDM driver (even if WDDM is disabled), mouse cursor becomes invisible in guest.
It doesn't happen with 1 vMonitor and not if I install GA without WDDM.

The issue should be fixed with http://www.virtualbox.org/download/test ... tiArch.exe , please give it a try.
Note that you need to update guest additions to make it work.
For those on non-win hosts, I'll post here a link to windows guest additions iso with a fix in a minute, just updating guest additions while using Beta2 host installation should be enough.
