Virtual PC: WinXP Mode @ 800x600 Rez?

Tue Apr 17, 2012 6:27 pm

I've d/led, installed, and updated the Virtual PC, WinXP Mode from Microsoft. But I need it to run in, or at least be able to be switched to, 800x600 rez when run in full-screen. I can't seem to change the rez while in it, though. This is its rez when I run it on my Win7 Pro, 64-bit system, and it won't let me move the slider-switch:

So what can I do to change the rez?

Thanks! :)

The only way you're going to do this is to turn your Win7 resolution down to 800x600 and then run the virtual XP instance in full screen.

Disable Integration from the toolbar, fix the rez, turn Integration back on.
