    Don't have a solution for you (but would love to hear any). I started playing Grim Dawn through Steam on my Windows 11 VM again and the mouse - while it won't "loop around" - will act erratically. When I put it over certain things in the various menus or more often when I open the character's inventory, it won't act the way it's supposed to. Like bringing up the description of the item. Also difficult at times picking up loot in the game itself.

    I confirm too, that most games and WoW itself not playable in 17 version because mouse issue. With "optimize for games" cursor is "lagging" and not accurate, without - all clicks results in camera crazy loop.

    The only solution I have found so far to these cursor issues is to play around with the 'smart mouse' feature, optimise, or detect mouse, or don't optimise, for World of Warcraft, you can select the Hardware Cursor to 'off' and it solves the issue. With other games you would need to experiment.

    I found a solution!!! After many hours, what worked for me for the Look around problem in 3D Games was:
    1. Shut Down virtual machine.

    2. Open Virtual Machine configuration.

    3. Go to Hardware > Boot Order > and paste in Boot Flags box:

      video.hw_pointer=0
    Note: The above solution will work fine when using a virtual machine for simple tasks such as document processing, but heavier usage (like games or 3D software) may work unreliably.

    This worked for me on the "Auto detect for games" setting in the configuration of parallels. The look-around left click would spin, with this code, it is normal.
    I hope this can help someone who has this issue.

    Enjoy!
