    Running 8.5.0 WMWare Fusion, and Mac OS X Sierra vs. 10.12 on Late 2013 13" MBP Retina

    After upgrading to Sierra, there is a mouse tracking issue in windows 7 virtual machine. When moving the mouse it tends to slow down quicker then your hand on the mouse. Anyone else face this?

    What can I do? It makes Excel unusable.

    Over the last few years, so many bugs on Mac, think for the first time in 10 years I'm moving back to PC. I can't take this.

    Enable optimise mouse for games in fusion preferences and see if that works for you.

    Ok. Thank you MrGimper, I'm getting closer. After optimizing for games, it fixes the annoying issue, but now, the mouse is moving all fluid. It's not moving directly from inputs, but smoothing out the curve if that makes sense.

    Now I need it to track like on the mac. I tried mouse option in windows (enhance pointer) and that helps, but now the mouse tracks entirely different.
