I had to set the Boot flags to this: devices.usb.mouse=1

This fixed the problem for me.

    This fixed it. it seems that you just need to try either 0 or 1 and see what works for you Commented Sep 15, 2016 at 14:26

this fixed for me:

shutdown the vm. open configure -> Hardware -> Boot Order. expand "Advanced Options" and type the following in the text box for Boot flags:


save and start the vm.

  • does it matter if install before or after the boot flags Commented Sep 14, 2016 at 11:10
