VMware player and use of On-Screen keyboard

I am using VMware player in Windows and have one Linux virtual machine (VM) running in it. In Windows I always use On-Screen keyboard since I cannot use normal one due to my disability. When I start mentioned Linux VM, Windows On-Screen keyboard does not work in Linux VM. So, I cannot login to Linux. Assistive Technologies in Linux does not provide such On-Screen keyboard on login as I am used to use. Is there any solution to use standard Windows On-Screen keyboard through VMware on Linux VM?

What version of Linux are you running? There are some that do provide on-screen keyboard at login. For example, Ubuntu has a universal access button you where you can enable on screen keyboard at login.

There is a workaround to this.
To enable on-Screen keyboard at login with Ubuntu see the screen shot guide by Sanjeev Mishra at clickonf5.org

Thanks for your comments. I found the solution: I changed to VirtualBox and on-screen keyboard works like a charm.
