Enable Graphic Acceleration in Windows Server 2003

How can I enable graphic acceleration in Windows Server 2003?

Windows Server 2003 Graphics Acceleration is disabled by default, which disables DirectX functionality. This is to enhance server stability and is not needed in standard server scenarios.

To enable DirectX, you must first enable graphics acceleration. To do so follow the next steps:

  1. Right click on the desktop and go to Properties, Settings, Advanced, Troubleshooting.
  1. Set the Hardware acceleration bar to Full.

  1. Click Ok all the way out.

To activate Direct3D and DirectDraw (DirectX) follow the next steps:

  1. Go to Start/Run and type "dxdiag".
  2. Click OK.
  3. Click on the Display tab, then click on the Enable button for DirectDraw and Direct3d.

  1. Click Ok all the way out.
