This has been bothering me for ages. I have an oldish computer that I use just for internet etc..but it has an Intel GMA 900, so no aero. But how come if I remote desktop to it, it can have aero (using the software wddm) etc (EVEN over network). But I cant enable this software compositing while using it through its graphics card.
All I am saying is that over LAN, the aero is extremely smooth even though it is software compositing on an ancient Pentium 4. I even tried installing windows 7 in a Virtaulbox without any guest additions and graphics acceleration, and it worked perfectly.
My only question is that is there a way to enable this software compositing on windows 7 without RDP?
