I am currently using VMWare Player 12 (free edition) on Windows 10 Pro x64 as host and guest system, and a Logitech M510 mouse as input device. My problem is that inside the guest-system, my "side" buttons (forward and back) do not work in any program.
I already googled for similar problems, and found out that some additional entries in the VMX-file are necessary:
usb.generic.allowHID = "TRUE" mouse.vusb.enable = "TRUE" mouse.vusb.useBasicMouse = "FALSE"
However, even when I add these settings, the additional buttons do not work, so I guess VMWare must have changed something additional.
Does anybody know a solution to this in newer versions of VMWare Player? I found a similar thread at the VMWare forums concerning the latest version of VMWare workstation, without a solution, so I guess this affects the latest player and workstation versions unfortunately.
