Windows 7: Dual Display in XP Mode?

Dual Display in XP Mode?

Just got a 2nd monitor and was wondering if there is a way to make XP mode utilize dual displays? I use xp mode to log into a citrix server for work and it would be great to have my citrix be in dual display.

I may be wrong but using dual monitors and the sort is going to require GPU Accelreation and that just isn't possible in XP Mode

Like I said...I may be wrong so hopefully another user will post something different

With my two monitors, each one has its own connection to the graphics card, so I dont see how dual view would work in virtualisation when only a basic driver is installed.

There is no VGA or display integration in Xp mode Settings, so by default i do not think it's possible. Don't know about third party software though.
