- Mouse pointer "flickers" around the screen, when clicking/dragging, the mouse pointer jumps to the upper left corner.
- This only happens when VMware Workstation is running on the second screen attached to the computer, not on the native screen.
- It happens on ALL operating systems, Linux, Windows, and perhaps also on Mac OS X.
Been looking around a bit to found out what was causing this behaviour, and it turns out that it is a generic problem with Workstation itself.
Thank you VMware forums, the solution is to disable "Display scaling on high DPI settings" on the vmware.exe in the C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation folder.
One of those issues that can drive you crazy, have you reinstalling your VM's a dozen of times thinking it is you doing something wrong, etc etc... so hope it helps :).
