I'm trying to run ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 in a Windows 7 (32bit) virtual machine. I don't have any native Microsoft Windows available. I'm using VirtualBox from Oracle for virtualization in a native linux environment (Sabayon).
I'm having exactly this issue: ArcGIS Explorer Map Display Issue
The proposed solution is to update video card driver. But in VirtualBox there are driver called "Guest additions" and they are already up-to-date.
I know some of my fellow students are working with ArcGIS in VMs and they seem not to have any kind of issues. What could it be?
3D- and 2D-Video-acceleration are enabled.
- It's a native Linux machine, running a virtual Windows 7 machine - 32bit.
- I'm aware of ESRI's system requirements. I allocated 256MB video RAM and enabled 2D and 3D hardware acceleration - as seen in the screenshot. Anyways, I've been running this analyzation of my system requirements from inside the machine, this is the result:
Now I got to figure out how to fix it. Video memory is okay, but the rest I've never heard of...
Update 2: I installed the experiemental WDDM drivers as @scw suggested, now it looks like that:
I have all recommended attributes now, but it still says:
Unfortunately, your Video Card does not meet this requirement.
In addition, ArcGIS crashs now after adding any layers.
