Increasing the gdi objects available

I'm always getting some graphical glitches when I minimize vmware workstation in full screen mode when running mac os x 10.6.6

And I think it's because of gdi objects always running out
So how do I increase the gdi objects in windows 7?

Well... you can increase the limit in the registry here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\GDIProcessHandleQuota
This value can be set to a number between 256 and 65,536.

However It is currently set to 10,000 (Thats per process) and if it's running out then there is something seriously wrong with what VMWare is doing. Increaseing to 20k may just delay the enevitable.

Also, don't set to 65k as I believe that may still be a system wide limit and you do NOT want to let VMWare use up ALL GDI objects or... POW! (that's the technical term)
