Intermittent Loss of Left/Right Mouse Click in Hyper-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • From time to time (and more frequently lately) I lose left/right click functionality on my mouse when connectng to Hyper-V via the virtual machine connection interface. The mouse movement works fine, but no buttons work on my mouse or laptop mouse pad.

    The only way to "remedy" the problem is to restart or save state and then re-start the VM.


    This does not seem to be a problem if I remote in using remote desktop.


    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

  • Update: I tried using Remote Desktop (MSTSC) instead of going from Hyper-V Manager and that seems to have fixed the issue..

  • I am having this problem also. I'm hosting with 2012 Server running Hyper-V 2012. If I use the right-click connect option to open a terminal directly from hyper-v that's when it happens to me (a lot) and it's so painful to get out of it. On my dell laptop (Laltitude e6510) all 3 of my LEFT click options die - the keyboard mouse, the trackpad, AND the wired mouse - all dead. Even the ENTER key has died to most of the dialog boxes and software applications, I am forced to find back door shortcuts and choosing menu options with arrow keys and spacebar (or ALT shortcut keys, such as ALT+F4 to close windows and pray I get prompted to save work ... even there I can't hit enter or any mouse left click operation, so I have to use keyboard shortcuts to accept the save prompt, which depends on the application).

    Here's my issue, I do have a network adapter configured for the VM, I can get to the internet within the VM, but using MSTSC /v:hostname or MSTSC /v: by IP address I cannot get to the VM. I've read through tomes of suggestions but can't seem to find this most basic of scenarios preventing me from opening an MSTSC session directly from the host to the hosted VM. Please summarize the key things to check please, thanks!

  • Using remote Desktop is a work around but it is not the solution.  I have encountered this problem far too often and from reading this list, it appears Microsoft has not addressed the problem since the inception of Hyper-V.  For the record, I am running Win 8 Pro x64 virtually via the Hyper-V client under Win 8 Pro x64 using an Asus G750 laptop.  Nearly once per day, I find myself needing to use the ALT shortcut keys to close all windows and restart my virtual session.

    Another annoying aspect of Hyper-V is no audio.  Virtual PC had none of these issues.

    Does anyone know if Windows 8.1 will address these problems?

  • I have the same issue on my VM's running on a Win8 x64 host with 32Gb ram.

    Integration services is fully updated.

    Unfortunately I can't use RDP because this VM uses Cisco's VPN client which is configured to prevent VPN connections from an RDP session.  This VM is running a client's image which I have no control over and am required to use in order to VPN to their network. 

    I second the need for Audio.  It works with RDP, why not the native Hyper-V session.

    Since we're on the subject... how about more resolution options so I can actually use my full screen (without scrolling) in a native Hyper-V session.
