  • VM Additions for Vista?

    Does anyone know how to make the VM Additions for VS run better on Vista Beta 1? Currently performance sucks big time.

    Hi Daniel,

    I read that the VM additions for Windows Vista "don't contain the same performance enchacements" as they do for other operating systems like XP. Now, when that will change, I don't know.

    Does anyone else have any news on this?

    I did find that Guy's website has a nice tutorial on installing them-

    Thanks,

        Daniel,


        Why didn't I think of that??

        Now I know where to look!

        It is cool that you have such detailed instructions for something still in Beta- very helpful.

        Thanks
