I tried the program, but it is not refreshing properly with block of the active window area not updating or just showing the desktop, until I move the cursor over the area or resize the window. Seems like it cannot handle the 3D is there a driver or setting/software I need to change? I tried it in VMWare Fusion and it works just fine.

Can anyone comment on the 3D capabilities of VirtualBox, or should I move on the VMWare/Parallels?

I haven't been able to get anything with D3D working, the OpenGL works in Windows. To have 3D active make sure you have checked the 3D checkbox in the guest settings.

My test was with Google Earth.
