Windows 7: Mouse problems with virtualbox

Mouse problems with virtualbox

Hello, So I have installed virtualbox and installed XP into it, the mouse works but it struggles getting to the edge of the page, it comes out the side of the VB window before actually reaching the edge if that makes sense?

Cheers,

I don't have XP in VirtualBox but this is the sort of behavior you get if you haven't installed the guest additions.

Start up the VB XP machine and log in as administrator. You can install guest additions by opening the VB devices menu and selecting Install guest additions. I don't know how that proceeds from there in XP but it will probably attach a disk and autorun it. There may be more info on this in the VB documentation.
