Windows 7: Xp Mode Game Issues

Xp Mode Game Issues

I had no problem installing Windows XP Mode, and I was able to install a game without any trouble too (Diablo 2). Once the install was complete and it ran a video test it said it couldn't find any compatible video device. Then when I try to run it, it doesn't do anything. Do I need to install another directx driver in the virtual xp mode OS, or possibly install another driver in there for my video card, or is XP mode not all that game friendly. I was trying to avoid a dual-boot situation as that's kind of complicated, and hoped this would save me from having to do that but maybe not.

XP Mode is not designed with gaming in mind and will work with only the most basic games (ie: Solitaire). If you want to use a game, either dual-boot or use VMware Player (http://www.vmware.com/player), which has the option for 3D Acceleration.

I believe this game will work in windows 7, just install normally.
