Windows 7: I got XP mode to display 24-bit color with integration!

Glad to hear you got it working! XP Mode is very strange as it did that same exact thing to me in the beginning. Sometimes things work, and sometimes they don't. Sometimes things get stuck in an endless loop of logging in and logging out.

Hopefully Microsoft fixes these problems in the future. And remember to give me a rep if I helped you guys out!

Actually, the absolute easiest method would be to just run the REG file in post #10. Glad it's working out for you.

1. Run regedit in XP.
2. Navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services].
3. Add a DWORD Value named "ColorDepth" w/o parenthesis.
4. Right-click it, modify, then put "4" in the Value data.
5. Restart XP mode.

On another note, if you clicked the link above, you'll notice that he said 32-bit color is possible with XP mode, but you'll have to make extensive changes to the RDP!
Are there any other applicable values other than 4?

You need to enable cleartype. Follow this wizard and youl notice the difference.
