Aero not working after installation of VMWare Tools

Hi,

after some problems i could install vmware tools on windows 7 guest (ubuntu host). I use vmware workstation player v16. i can't enable aero that is needed by an application i want to use. The name of the graphics card in device manager is

VMWare SVGA 3D

i guess this is not the "graphic card" i need for aero?

When windows starts there is a notification that 3d support is not available from the host. But this should work

glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes

On the linux guest i use the amdgpu driver insteda of radeon. Can this be the problem?
