VMWARE Workstation 9 Mouse Cursor

Hello,
I installed VMWARE Workstation 9 onto a brand new Dell PowerEdge system, and I am not creating VMWARE Windows images. The mouse on each image is acting strange. For some reason, the regular mouse cursor is white, and then off to the side of it is another mouse cursor which is black. It is almost like a shadow, but it really looks like two mouse cursors.

I reinstalled the VMware tools onto the VMware workstations, but this hasn't made a difference. My mouse is a DELL mouse. I don't know if that is an issue. Do you have any idea why this is happening, and how to get a normal mouse cursor back?

Thanks,
John

Did you install VMware Tools in the VM?

If your mouse is slow to respond or if it is working erratically, change the optimization settings

Try enable 3D Acceleration in VMware and see if it makes difference. Also, try reduce Hardware Acceleration of Host operating system. ~reference below.

Adding the line mks.noHostCursor= "True"  C:\Program Data\VMWare\<VMWare Product>\Config.ini could probably fix the issue.
