I have allocated 1gb of video memory to the virtual machine on display settings although on windows it states only 64mb of video memory. what gives?
Welcome to community and thanks for using Fusion.
For video memory , it is shared with the memory you allocated to the vm.
Could you give the configuration of your vm, such as what amount you allocated to vm for memory and video memory?
It is better if you can attach the screenshot("on windows it states only 64mb of video memory")
