Windows 7: Loss of mouse upon disabling of virtual machine integration features

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Loss of mouse upon disabling of virtual machine integration features


I am running a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit computer. I have installed the windows virtual PC and have windows XP running on it. I installed windows 7 32 bit into another virtual machine, but when I try to test the one program Risk, a game from Hasbro, the game crashes like it does under the windows XP machine when the virtual machine integration features are enabled. If I disable the virtual machine integration features Risk runs fine. However under Windows 7 32 bit, when the integration features are disabled in the virtual machine, I lose both mouse and keyboard control. This does not happen under the windows XP virtual machine instance. Why is this happening and is there any workaround. Risk is a game I enjoy, and I have found it does not run under Windows 7 64 bit, and Windows XP support is now terminated. The windows 7 32 bit installation into a virtual machine was a test to get the program to run under a newer OS.

I managed to find the solution. It turned out that the virtualization integration file did not install properly. deinstallation then reinstallation of the integration features made the vm machine work properly.
