    Hey I have got the solution for making the mouse pointer move freely from Virtual PC to the local System.

    Come out of the Virtual PC.

    Click Actions in the menu bar -> Click on Install or Update Virtual Machine Addons

    This will take the files from the existing installation only.

    This steps works
