If you MUST use the console for some reason install vmware tools, enable hardware acceleration in advanced properties under graphical adapter and, if you are using autocad, increase video memory from the vm bios. I don't know why, but it helps a lot.
Yeah.. I know that..
But some scenarios here we really need connect to console, and we are experiencing poor performance on it.
I've seen 3 weeks ago some advanced parameters that we can change to get a better performance, but i lost it..
No resolution for this... actually along time, patches helped to gain some perfomance, but certain cases still slow.
FYI, Before post this message, I did all the steps inputed here..
