My Desktop PC is having Intel-R--82945G-Express-Chipset-Family--Microsoft-Corporation with WDDM 1.0 Ii need to upgrade it to WDDM 1.1 for Windows Phone 7 emulator to work.

With the present WDDM 1.0, I am not able to access internet in Windows Phone 7 emulator.

I want to know whether it is feasible or not to upgrade to WDDM 1.1

Feasible or possible? – soandos Sep 24 '12 at 20:49

What it's asking for is that you have a video driver that is WDDM 1.1 compliant.

Unfortunately no such thing exists as the 82945G chipset family is now a legacy product.

You'll need to get a (modern, but not necessarily fast or expensive) dedicated graphics card to use the emulator, so for that you'll need an available PCI-Express slot.
