Problems with VNC and USB mouse

Guys,

Are you running any special mouse-handling software on the problem
machines?

Do you see the problem if you take the same mouse and try it with a
different machine?

Is the mouse described at the viewer or server machine?

Cheers,

Wez @ RealVNC Ltd.

I exactly know what you're talking about, I'm having the same problems
and no solution yet.

VNC is configured correctly, and there is neither the Alt nor the Ctrl
key locked. Mouse clicks only work within the taskbar, every other
window loses the focus if you click on it and basically no mouse click
works.

I experienced that sometimes a right click immediately followed by a
left click temporarily solves the problem, but that's not a work-around.

The problem occurred after I installed a new USB wireless mouse, but
since I'm 5000 miles away from that pc now, I can't verify that it's the
mouse by reinstalling the old one/another one.

I'm also having the same problem with UltraVNC.

Mark.

Hello,

mouse don't work, I can move it around the screen but
