Windows 7: BlueStacks on different OS's

12 Nov 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and Windows Server 2003 Enterprise 32bit
BlueStacks on different OS's

Hello, Severn Forums!
This is not issue or problem, I want just to discus with you, guys with good intentions and with good talking and chatting. :)
If you don't use BlueStacks then I don't think this thread is interesting for you.
Here is what I'm talking about.
I don't have smartphone but I use Android time to time on my laptop via emulator called BlueStacks.
Mostly I use Zynga Poker app.
There are 2 apps, Zynga Poker Classic and Zynga Poker - Texas Hold Em. I don't have probelm with Zynga Poker Classi so I use it but Zynga Poker - Texas Hold Em doesn't work on Windows Server 2003.
I prefer Windows Server 2003 because laptop is a bit old and performance is much better and BluStacks works very well on it. My second OS is Windows 7 Ultimate.
But, what is a bit weird is, I cannot use Zynga Poker - Texas Hold Em on Server 2003. When I install Zynga Poker - Texas Hold Em and when I open it I get blue screen of death. This happens also when I install some, let say, heavy apps. But this doesn't happen on Windows 7.
The fault of BSOD is graphics driver. Yeah, latest XP/2003 graphics driver's date for my laptop is 22 april 2011. So I guess it's old driver. But, also latest driver for Windows 7 is from 2011 year. My question is why Zynga Poker - Texas Hold Em doesn't work on Server 2003?
I found somewhere newer driver for XP (2012) and it was not official Intel driver. I installed it and I had no problem generaly on my laptop, but again I got BSOD when I open BlueStacks. So I rolled back driver to official 2011.
So, latest driver for my laptop is 2011 for XP and for Windows 7. Then why I get BSOD on Server 2003 and not on Windows 7?
Of course when I need to use Zynga Poker - Texas Hold Em I restart my laptop and I go to second OS (Windows 7) but I cannot understand why Zynga Poker - Texas Hold Em doesn't work on 2003.
Thanks in advance for any friendly comment and reply. :)

Edit: well, after trying some ideas and making some search on Google I figured out where is problem. It was DirectX Display tab. DirectDraw Acceleration and Direct3D Acceleration were disabled. I enabled them and now every app works very well on BlueStacks with Windows Server 2003.
