Microsoft Virtual PC - Mouse Control

I have installed MS VPC on my Windows 7 Ultimate Laptop and when I click in the window for the Virtual environment I can't get the mouse control back to th main laptop. I have tried the Ctrl+Alt+Left Arrow and it works fine on my desktop but not on my laptop. The only way I can regain control is to CAD the laptop and then cancel out which then places the mouse cursor back in the laptop window.

Any ideas?

Do you have VM Additions installed on your VM?

This does sound like the VPC additions are not installed - Log on the the virtual machine, then from the VPC menu select, Actions->Install or Update Virtual Machine Additions

By default the HOST key is the Right-hand Alt key
So you can just use that.......

Umm...I guess I'm confused as to why I at least didn't get a 'split' of the points since I was the 1st to give an appropriate answer?

Sorry was not intentional. Thought I did them all. Can I add you in now or something?

Again, it was not intentional

I'm not sure; I 'requested attention' to this question. So hopefully a moderator will be able to help.

Thanks "NorthstarIT" :)
