    Recording training and demo simulations in a virtual machine (VMWare)

      Hello everyone,

       

      I am wondering if it is possible to record a software simulation in a VM (VMWare) without requiring Captivate (v4) to be installed inside the VM?

       

      A while back someone had suggested that it was possible to record a software simulation by connecting to the VM via RDC (Remote Desktop). I tried RDC, however, I found that I had to manually capture each slide and Captivate does not recognize mouse or keyboard actions. The resulting simulation required me to manually add in all mouse and keyboard actions. Obviously, that isn't very time efficient.

       

      Must I install Captivate in the VM or is there another way to record simulations (and their associated actions) in a VM?

       

      Thank you
