I downloaded the latest Winbuilder version 078 SP4, build a VistaPE v12 CAPI ISO file with it, I selected the 'recommended' drivers/apps/ etc, all went fine the 55 full steps.

Then I load the ISO file in VMware Workstation v7.0 and I was surprised how good it looked, but also surprised when trying to move the mouse I couldn't get any at all, the mouse can be seen outside the VMware window, in the desktop but once I move it inside the VMware application running the VistaPE v12 CAPI ISO there is nothing. the keyboard keystrokes work to move around windows but is not what I expected.

Any suggestion how to fix this, besides building again another vistape ISO ?

I just did another build of VISTAPE_CAPI..

it went through the 89 steps without a glitch.

then I Mounted the ISO in VMware 7.0.

Guess what ?????


Again, NO MOUSE present to work with.

I used a USB Mouse and I also tried a PS2 Mouse.

what's going on here

Maybe that is only an issue of VMWare 7.0
(for my projects I maintain VMWare, but here the actual script is (I'm not the fastest!) for VMWare 6.?)

Did you try VirtualBox or qEmu to emulate?

You are totally right, seems like it's an issue with Vmware 7.0.

this time I installed VirtualBox (Version 3.1.2 built 56127) to see if this problem showed up. The Mouse seems to appear ok and work fine.

I wish I could find the issue with VMware Workstation Version 7.0.0 build-203739 as I rather preffer this Virtual environment over the other 2 (VirtualBox, QEMU)

I wish I could find the issue with VMware Workstation Version 7.0.0 build-203739

mouse working fine here

I just tested with a fresh download of VistaPECapi by unselecting all "apps" and "OtherOS" , rest of the scripts are at default settings.
used vistax86sp2 as source cd, hostos is xpx64, tested on VMware Workstation Version 7.0.0 build-203739
(if it matters i select "Windows XP Professional" when creating the virtual machine on VMware WS)

I hope this helps the chase :)

I also tested it in VMWare Workstation 6.5.2 wich was the latest release before gointo into v.7.0 and the problem still shows there, no mouse present.

I did tested it with QEMU and VirtualBox and both are OK, the mouse is present and move almost normal (The build was for VistaPE_CAPI With most of the apps and Others).

If you could run the mouse with no Apps or Others that's a progress on finding out what could be the culprit, and maybe others can give some feedback here.

I used 3 different computers, and 32bit and 64bit platforms (Vista x64, Windows 7 x86)

maybe this is all about hostos, my hostos is xpx64. Please test with the selected scripts on my previous post to be more sure :)
