Mouse not captured in Windows Server 2008. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to install Windows Server 2008 on a hyper- V Virtual Machine. The Generation of my machine is Generation 1. I am unable to install the Operating System on this Virtual Machine because it is giving the error " Mouse input cannot be captured in Remote Desktop Session".

    How could we move forward with it?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Sounds like you'll need to fall back on keyboarding skills until OS is installed where you can install integration services.

  • What version of Hyper-V?

    Maybe something here (https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/5e01e5b3-ed30-45bf-a64b-d2661d8801be/mouse-amp-keyboard-issue-in-hyperv-manager?forum=winserverhyperv) would help?

  • Yes, this is expected behavior. You'll need to use the keyboard to begin and complete the installation.

    IIRC, once the Integration Components are installed, you'll have mouse access.

    EDIT:  Once the OS is installed and you've had your reboot, changed the admin PW, etc., you'll gain mouse control.
