Usually Linux comes with x.org drivers for mice, keyboards, displays, and the like.
One question, though: Can the scroll wheel be used as a button and be recognized (if it does have button functionality)?
If it can, your mouse may be being detected as a three-button mouse without a scrolling wheel. If it can't, then it may be being detected as a two-button mouse.
This could be the mouse being improperly detected by either Linux Mint or Hyper-V. As I am not familiar with Hyper-V, and am not experiencing scroll-wheel difficulties, I'm afraid that's all the advice I can give, other than make sure the mouse does not have anything (dirt, etc.) interfering with the scroll-wheel input.
They say that a three-year old can use Windows 8. I say that's a bit of a regression. When I was three, I could use DOS.
