Hello. Some but not all of our users are experiencing screen flickering issues in remote desktop sessions. I'd like to try a different or updated video driver if possible. Are there alternative drivers available for our configuration?
ESXi 6.0.0 3620759
VMware Tools 10.0.6 build 3560309
Windows Server 2008 R2
Microsoft Remote Desktop connections
Windows 7 64 bit clients
VMWare SVGA 3D driver installed
128MB RAM allocated video card
Options, General, Disable Acceleration unchecked
VMware Tools 10.2.5 build 8068406 has VMware SVGA 3D driver version 126.96.36.199.
In general, the video drivers of VMware Tools can be extracted to a folder by running
in a Command Prompt window in a Windows VM. You'll be prompted for a folder location destination for the extraction.
You can then update the video driver manually from the Device Manager of the Windows VM and point to the folder where you extracted the VMware Tools to look for updated drivers. This way you only change the video driver and everything else is untouched (e.g. VMCI, vmxnet3, pvscsi drivers, VMware Tools suite etc).
