Mouse does not work after converting MS VM to VMware VM

Before any conversion uninstall MS VM tools.
After conversion if mouse does not work in VMware infrastructure Client console session - in my case it just disappers from the console, try to do next from
" go into the registry and navigate to the keyHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E96F-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Remove the value msvmmouf from the UpperFilters Regvalue.Reboot....
If you wish you can take out the drivers completely by deleting these registry hives completely :
The driver:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\msvmmouf
The Service:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\VPCMapThe CopyHook Shell Extension: ( for folder access )HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{30C14BA C-122C-42ED-B319-1139DBF48EB8}\InProcServer32HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\CopyHookHandle rs\VPCCopyHook
After a reboot you can delete the "Virtual Machine Additions" folder from program files..."
