Windows 7: Problem installing program in xp mode

Problem installing program in xp mode

Intel core 2 duo CPU E8400 @3.00GHz 3.00GHz
4.00GB ram
Windows 7 professional 32-bit

Being new to windows 7 I have installed virtual windows to run all my old XP programs. However, installing "Unreal 2" I get the following message: Please enable Direct3D acceleration. You can do this by starting dxdiag and enabling Direct3D Acceleration in the Display 1/2 tab after installing DirectX 8.1b (or later) and the latest drivers for your graphics card. Following these instructions though, I find the Direct3D Acceleration feature is greyed out? Can anyone tell me where I go from here?
Thanks

Please give us the GPU specs. Also, Try running the program (dxdiag) as admin.

Xp mode wasn't designed for games or other graphic intensive programs, It uses an emulated graphics solution, not your real graphics card.
