    You can't be using the virtual machine when trying to activate the accelerated graphics :)

    Fusion's performance when it comes to 2D/3D graphics is rather poor, even with 3D acceleration turned on. Parallels will usually get at least double the framerate Fusion does, just make sure DirectX support is enabled in the virtual machine configuration.

    There are a number of different ways to do this...

    1. Launch Parallels or Fusion and transfer files via a shared folder.
    2. Launch Parallels or Fusion and mount the Bootcamp partition in OS X.
    3. Install MacFuse in OS X (directions here: http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifehack/how-to-read-and-write-ntfs-windows-partition-on-mac-os-x.html)
    4. Install MacDrive in Windows.
    5. Sneakernet.
