This from virtualbox.org:

"The VirtualBox Guest Additions contain experimental hardware 3D support for Windows, Linux and Solaris guests.[19]
With this feature, if an application inside your virtual machine uses 3D features through the OpenGL or Direct3D 8/9 programming interfaces, instead of emulating them in software (which would be slow), VirtualBox will attempt to use your host's 3D hardware"

Thanks. it's not made it to the servers for the UK yet. I wonder if this will fix the Windows 8 problems? One can but hope.

It has fixed my WDDM (3D driver) problem in W8.

With 4.1.12 I still had problems with the guest additions. It rendered my Win 8 unusable. I had to restore a snapshot I took before trying the new Guest Additions for Win 8.
