I have just started using my pair of 1920x1200 monitors in portrait and like the set up, but I'm having problems with my Windows Vista virtual machine not using the whole screen area.
Both my Windows 2000 and Windows XP VMs happily use the full 1200x1896 area remaining after the Quick Switch tab bar is taken into account, but the Vista (Ultimate SP2, fully patched) virtual machine doggedly insists on using 1200x1600 instead, leaving huge black bars above and below the used display.
If I switch to full screen mode then auto fit guest will happily switch Vista to 1200x1920, but I much prefer the convenience of using quick switch.
If I switch to windowed mode, with auto fit guest enabled then any window which results in a screen height over 1600 high will also result in a display 1600 high (2k and XP cope fine with this mode too).
Does anyone have any idea if this is an inherent limitation of Vista, VMware Workstation (7.1.6 build-744570) or the Vista VMware display driver, and how to fix this?
