VmWare 3d acceleration driver install?
I tried to install counter-strike on my vmware image of windows xp pro x64 edition. The thing is that when I opened up the application, I was told that I could only run in software mode. How do play the game utilizing my geforce 8600gt graphics card?
I have already checked the box VirtualMachine->Settings->Display->Accelerate 3D graphics. So this shouldn't be the problem.
I also tried downloading a driver from nvidias web site, but I could not install it.

an 8600GT (check the device manager). What your real video card is
doesn't matter. That's what "virtual" is all about.
games can work on it.
Boot Camp is always recommended for gaming because of the direct
hardware access. Boot Camp itself doesn't support 64-bit yet, but
only in the sense that it doesn't supply the necessary 64-bit drivers.
I've heard of people who have installed XP-64 on Boot Camp, tracking
down and installing the correct drivers themselves. I don't play games, so
I've never had the need to do this myself, so I can't help you there.
You'll need to track down some kind of HOWTO on making XP-64
work in Boot Camp.

hi im having the same problem
could anyone please supply an update to this page
the problem again is, how do you utilize the integrated gforce graphics card in the virtual machine.

Yep, because you can't access the actual graphics card directly in a virtualized environment; all access has to be done through VMWare's HAL. If you want to have direct access to all your hardware you need to install Windows natively via Bootcamp.
Make life easier if you have a programming question!
