    9879 update - Muuse driver won't install and system hangs


    Hi there

    I've posted this in this section rather than the VM one since I'm not sure if it's a generic Windows 9879 problem or a VMware one.

    Using a Microsoft mouse (so they SHOULD have drivers for it !!!!) - after doing the latest updates I had to re-install VMWARE TOOLS in WKS 11.

    System hangs (INCLUDING THE HOST !!! running Windows 8.1) when Mouse driver fails to install. Had to re-boot THE HOST !!!. (Incidentally exactly the same problem happened on a Linux host so IMO it's definitely some sort of Windows USB problem)

    In all the years of using VMWARE I can't say I've ever had a problem with a USB driver -- at least not for things like mice -a USB2 driver surely must be one of the most bog standard things there is.

    previous version of W10 --OK --- there seems to be a bit wrong with the latest build -- not sure what's happening but is it one step forward and two backwards (or Back to Square "-Z").

    I found 9879 broke VirtualBox guest additions (previous versions also worked) so it could be a general guest additions / version issue.

    I am therefore running the VM headless and connecting with remote desktop. You could try that.

    Hi there

    Kari's suggestion of using HYPER-V works (Thanks Kari) but I also want to run the VM on Linux too -- VMware usually works fine on LINUX Hosts as well as WINDOWS. I'll see what happens after the next lot of 9879 updates -- probably the best way is to run on a REAL machine, update it and then convert to a VM with the P2V conversion tool from VMware which usually works.

    Not running VMware tools gives a poor mouse response and you don't get 3D / hardware acceleration in the graphics plus you lose some resolution on nice big monitors --you really need the SVGA 3D graphics driver (VMware tools).
