What kind of mouse?  Can you use a USB mouse?

XP may not be supported as a Hyper-V guest in such a new machine.

Now that being said, I have installed Windows XP on labs using VMware.

Mouse, video, audio all work as expected.

I have XP running under VMware Workstation 12.5.4 and mouse and all other functions work fine.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I've even gone so far back as to install Windows 3.11 in VMware Workstation and even that works flawlessly.

I have DOS, Windows 3.1, Windows 95 and all forward all here on my machine.

I'm using a Dell usb mouse. This mouse is working well under others VM.

I know that XP is running well under VMWare. My problem is with Hyper-V-server 2016.

For the integrations Services What should I do exactly ?

Yes, I tried to install the integration Services By clicking on : <Action> <Insert integration services disk> from the VM.

But I got the following message :
Error when adding peripheral Windows:Hyper-V:Virtial CD/DVD to "WinXPsp3".

I translated the message from french. WinXPsp3 is the name my VM.

If I'm right the integartion services is : vmguest.iso

I can't find this file on the Hyper-V-server 2016 disk.
John

Can you make a new XP guest, install fresh and try that?
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

I find and downloaded a vmguest.iso coming from Windows 2012R2. I copied the Iso file to c:\windows\system32.

After that I could run the integration services on my XP VM.

Now the mouse is working. Great.

this is the URL of the download page : https://rlevchenko.com/2017/02/18/faq-windows-server-2016-and-hyper-v-integration-services/

Thanks for all ...
John

Thanks for using integration services and thanks for the update.

LOL!!!  You win.  ==>  Nah, not even close :-)

I have every OS back to CP/M running in VMWare virtual machines :-)

Several versions of MSDOS;  Win 3.1;  WFW 3.11;  Win 95;  Win98 original;  Win 98 SE;  Win ME;  Win 2000;  Win 2000 Server;  EVERY version of XP (including tablet and x64 versions);  EVERY version of Vista in both x32 and x64 versions;  EVERY version of '7 (including both x32 and x64 versions);  most versions of 8 & 8.1 (not all of the N & KN versions); and both Home & Pro versions of '10 in both x32 and x64 versions :-)    In addition to an install of MSDOS running UniDOS that allows CP/M to run just fine [I have WordStar v1.0 running in it :-) ]; and a few server versions [Win 2000, Server 2003, and Server 2008]    Plus about a dozen Linux installs of various flavors.
