Vsphere 4.1 server 2008 r2 video driver WDDM
I recently installed (7) Windows Server 2008 R2 virtual machines on my Vsphere 4.1 cloud. All the new machines had a really slow mouse, almost felt like it was drifting thru some water. While everything else worked fine I just found this very annoying.
After some research I found the correct video driver.
It was located at:
C:Program FilesCommon FilesVMwareDriverswddm_video
Steps to Update:
Control Panel > Display > Change Display Settings > Advanced Settings > Adapter Tab > Properties > Driver Tab > Update Driver > Browse my computer > go to the location and select the wddm_folder
I am sure there is a quicker way to get to this but that’s how I got there.
Reboot your PC and like magic your mouse should run smooth as butter.
