I am experiencing a glitch when using one particular software on either Virtualbox’s Seamless mode or VMware’s Unity mode. I intend to use either of these for playing online poker and if I have only the poker client open, everything works fine as intended. However, I also need to use additional software that aids me while playing – a tracking tool that collects data from played hands and generates statistical information in the form of tables that are forced on top of poker tables next to each player. If I open the software, immediately when the tables with statistics appear, there also appears a rectangular gray box around the poker table, which has something to do with the guest desktop because I can see the guest desktop’s icons in the gray area if I move it around.
I’ve tried both VirtualBox and VMware and the glitch is the same. I really need to fix this but don’t know how to approach it. VirtualBox’s Seamless mdoe has major issues when used on Windows 10 that are similar to my glitch just more severe and they have not prioritised solving those issues for several years now, so I figured that asking on their forums about this would not be worth it. VMware on the other hand offers paid support for something like 55$ per 1 problem. That feels like the only route to take currently but I was hoping that maybe someone here has a better idea about what I should do. Perhaps there is a quick fix to try or maybe asking VMware is not likely to result in a solution anyway so I sohuld look elsewhere and save money instead of paying for expensive support for no reason.
I am running Windows 8.1 on the virtual machines. Here’s a screenshot of the glitch:
Any help whatsoever appreciated.
