    Yes it will

    Let me explain, when running Window inside of the virtual environment, the Host OS (Mac OS in this case) is responsible for sending input (keyboard and mouse) to the guest OS (Windows). In the virtual setup Windows does not directly interface with the Host OS's input devices at the hardware level. Since Mac OS clearly will work 100% with this mouse, then so will any guest os that is run under it. Bootcamp sessions however are a COMPLETELY different ball game since in that case, Windows becomes the "Host" OS.
