Using VMware Workstation 6.0.4 build 93057 on a Windows Vista Home Premium.
VMware tools 7.2.9 build 93057, any help? Thanks! :)

EDIT: D'oh! I found a solution! Maybe I should use Google search before I post...

EDIT 2: For people stumbling on this thread wondering how I did it heres the link...

http://www.tipstrs.com/tip/89/Enable-mouse-scroll-under-VMware-guest

If you can't get to that page here is what it says...

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _____________
In case where using guest Linux under VMware, mouse scroll does not work.
To fix this, open terminal and type the following:
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Then find "InputDevice" section with Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Change Option "Protocol" "ps/2"
to Option Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Last restart X using Ctrl + Alt + Backspace. NOTICE: This restarts without confirmation.
