Slow 2D Graphics in Windows 8 with Workstation 9

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with my Windows 8 guest operating system.

I'm using Windows 7 64bit on the host with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti. The latest drivers are installed (310.70).

When I'm working with software in the VM, like Visual Studio 2012, Word 2013 or something else, I notice many graphic lags. The window isn't rendered correctly and not as fast as it should. If I move the cursor in Visual Studio 2012 one line down, the previous line is still highlighted. It's like a remote session with a slow connection.

Is there a solution for this problem. This is so annoying, that I cannot work properly in the vm.

I already increased the vmram through this line in the vmx-file:

svga.vramSize = "83886080"

But it hadn't solved the problem.

I hope someone has a solution.

Bye,

Traidor

Hi,

the problem is solved now Smiley Happy.

Either the new VMware Workstation version 9.0.2 or the NVIDIA version 314.22 solved this problem!
