VMware: 3D acceleration is not supported - FIX

Post by fatso »

Searched the forums, but don't see anything about this issue, so I'm posting the fix that has always worked for me.

Problem: When starting up your installed VM in VMware, you get this message:
3D acceleration is not supported in this guest operating system
and here's the fix:
Open your VM's .vmx file in a text editor.
At the end, paste this on its own line:

Code: Select all

mks.gl.allowBlacklistedDrivers = TRUE
Save & exit.
Start your VM.
