I don't think virtual machines are supposed to recognize hardware directly, Have you installed the Guest addons that allow you to resize the window? Those will install Sun drivers that should give you higher resolution(if that's your problem). What guest OS are you talking about btw.

VB and pretty much every Virtualization Technology emulates a computer with a sort of exception on the CPU department

so as you see the video adapter is also emulated
what i love about vb though is that it offers a OpenGL acceleration mode and Vmware does D3D accelaration....
although its a young technology, its getting there....

You can not load your native video drivers in any Virtual Machine.
They all use a virtual video adapter with 3D Hardware Acceleration, to try and take advantage of what it can. But you can not (at this time) use your Video Card in a VPC as you can on your native/guest PC.

One day, we may have full blown hardware virtualization.
But by then, we won't be using the same type OS or PC technology.

It should work, I've loaded a 98 vhd I had before into VB.

It's not gonna run the xp mode through VB though, if that's what you're expecting.

Was just thinking of saving space and use a single vhd for both apps but is no issue to dig out an old xp disk and set that up
