Post by Dr Eggman »

I want to know, can i enable glass in a longhorn 4039 vm? i do in 5048 because of the registry, but in regedit, the registry wont appear.

This is already been writing up by XDude:

No. Full Glass won't work in a VM, with the exception of Longhorn Build 5048. With 4074, You can only get glass on the sidebar and taskbar. Otherwise, the Virtual Machine doesn't have the requirements.

They need to make VMs that can emulate better graphic processors.

VMs were made to emulate a PC wich can run windows or linux or ... on top of a windows or linux or ... to test applications on various windows or linux or ... they were NOT designed to play games and heavy graphics card displays such a aero, for that you must buy a computer with graphics card.

Maybe in the future but the technology is now not ready yet.

(The ... are other OS wich can run a VM)

that was the orginal pupose, but it could also be made for companies testing new os before deploying it on a real computer. Like an evaluation.
