Resolved - MS Office Communicator share desktop feature issues?

statykserver
While using MS Office communicator's 'Share Desktop' feature, the USB mouse and keyboard on the host become erratic, mouse skipping around everywhere, and keyboard typing extra characters. If you only use the onboard keyboard and trackpad it works fine. Have tried different external devices and same issue. Any ideas on how to get external devices working fine with this feature?

Turns out it was a bad docking station.

    if you set BIOS and/or Windows settings to turn off all pointing devices aside from the mouse when the mouse is connected. Otherwise, this may simply be a feature of 'Share Desktop".

    This particular system works fine while using WeBex Share desktop feature, and the Office communicator Share desktop feature works fine on other systems, just not this particular one.

    Guess the workaround of using the onboard keyboard and trackpad will have to do for now, though I was hoping to get this resolved.

    I will check the BIOS settings for the pointing devices and see if that changes anything.
