Autodesk Inventor 2008 runs just fine and pretty smoothly on a virtualized XP SP3 using VB 3.2.8 with 1.5GB RAM and 128MB VRAM allocated.
Unfortunately the newer 2010 completely misbehaves. It still uses DirectX 9 and starts, but is terribly slow and almost instantly crashes when opening a 3D object. Is there a way to get this sorted out? What can I provide?
