Re: [vfio-users] VM loses mouse



I thought u're using something like virt-viewer for the display, which work with vdagent.exe. Looks like that's not the case.

How do u switch mouse/keyboard between the host and the VM?

Are u sure one of your VGA card is pass-through to the VM and is working? I'm asking because I heard they won't work together.

There doesn't appear to be such a process (using Task Manager in a
working Windows 10 VM).
