Use VPC fullscreen on your large screen
· 2009-02-27 13:35 by Thijs Kroesbergen for Brokenwire.NET

I haven’t tried this for myself yet, but as you can read in the description hotfix number 958162 will let you use VPC 2007 SP1 full-screen on your large kick-ass monitor. The maximum resolution for a virtual machine now is 2048x1920 instead of the old 1600x1200. This feature has been on high demand for ages!

Besides the maximum resolution several performance and stability fixes have been made in the virtual machine networking.

To install this hotfix you’ll need to run msiexec.exe  from an elevated command prompt. Just double click won’t work.

To install this update, save the .msp file locally. If you are running Windows Vista, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, or Windows Server 2008, run the update from an elevated command prompt. To do this, use the following command syntax:

msiexec /p path of .msp file

If you are running an earlier version of Windows, double-click the downloaded .msp file to start the installation process. Then, follow the installation instructions.
