I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit with Virtual PC installed. My XP Virtual Machine screen resolution has 16 BIT 1024*768. I can't get it it 32 BIT.

I've reinstalled the VM components but to no avail. Is this normal with Virtual PC?


You can get 24-bit by modifying a Group Policy setting as detailed here.

  1. This is a superuser.com question.
  2. The virtual XP mode in W7 only supports 16-bit video with the current release.
