XP MCE 2005's Media Center driver/video error.

Post by Vista2007 »

When I start Windows Media Center on Windows XP MCE 2005 I recieve an error saying Your video card or driver is not compatible with Media Center, I click on OK and Media Center starts without animations.
I don't know why this is happening because other XP MCE's Media Center start without errors.I am using VmWare Workstation 17.0.

I assume that you've installed vmware tools? I've gotten this error before, probably due to an actual incompatible video card.
I collect old laptops and mess with old software.

My chosen virtual machine programs:
Win 9x+, Intel macOS: VMware
9x as well (and earlier): 86box
PPC Mac OS: QEMU

Current Projects: Installing every beta build of Windows Me in VMware and recovering from data loss. (viewtopic.php?p=468094#p468094)
Past Projects: Installing every beta build of Windows XP, Longhorn, Vista, and Windows 7 in VMware (https://www.betaarchive.com/wiki/index. ... nonymous74)

I have installed VmWare Tools in my VM but it doesn't load animations.
