Windows 10: vmware wks 11 / vmplayer 7 No 3d available from Host

    vmware wks 11 / vmplayer 7 No 3d available from Host

    running W10 as a GUEST on VMware WKS 11 / vmplayer 7 message is no 3d support from Host. However the VM seems to work perfectly and I'm not getting as far as I can see any degradation on graphics --play an old game like spider solitaire - if the card movements are jerky then graphics are not working properly. Graphics are absolutely fine it seems.

    Running WKS 10.0.4 or vmplayer 6 - no message.

    I get the feeling that the support is now built in to the VMware tools graphics driver so the message might be because of the config file.

    I'm just going to ignore it --doesn't seem to have any problems.

    BTW to test if your host DOES support 3D simply if it's Linux run glxgears. If you see the coloured wheels in 3d then everything is OK. Pic shown.
