Mousemove in autohotkey doesn't work

Postby swarsron » 9. Feb 2010, 19:41


i stumbled across a problem with autohotkey in a virtualized windows (long description
see When i execute the following
ahk script inside virtualbox the mouse doesn't move

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory

CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
MouseMove, 100, 100

It should move the pointer to 100, 100. It works when i disable mouse integration. So there seems
to be some kind of conflict. My setup:
VirtualBox 3.1.2
Windows XP Guest
Ubuntu karmic Host

Is there a way to fix this wile keeping mouse integration active? I assume that that would require
sending the new mouse position to the host so that the positions stay in sync.
