Postby Alex24789 » 5. Aug 2007, 04:12

ok i have a Windows Vista as my host computer and i made the guest OS Windows XP. Now the only reason i want the guess OS ti be XP is so i can use Diablo with some other programs. The problem is that to play Dialbo 2 u have to run a video test the npick Direct 2D or 3D but it cant detect either of them and says i need to install directX and drivers that support the Directx version. I have already installed all the Microsoft updates and the newest Directx and the guest add ons so it shows my video card as VisualBox Graphics Adapter. Can someone plz just help me get it to work thx

DirectDraw is not support by the display driver in 1.4.0. This has been fixed already and will be included in the upcoming 1.4.2 VBox release.
