Vista Ultimate (in Virtual PC) and I don't have Aero

Can you help me with something? I have Windows Vista Ultimate (in Virtual PC) and I don't have Aero. How can I get it? I have installed Guest Components.

I don't believe this is possible. VirtualPC does not use your real video system but an emulated one. The video card that was emulated is an old one, chosen for best compatibility, not for optimum performance or a full feature set. It does not support Aero.

To get Aero you would need to use a more advanced virtualization system, such as VirtualBox or preferably VMware.

I use VMware Workstation 11. The problem,as I said in a lot of threads,is sound. It is distorted,crackling. That's the problem. Even the VMware article doesn't help either.
