I've got windows guest additions r73507. I know it doesn't work on Win 8 yet 
but I still can't get Aero working on Win7. 

The assessment test stops saying:

"Could not complete the assessment.
The assessment or other operation did not complete successfully. This is due 
to an error being reported from OS, driver or othe component."

I installed the WDD driver and correctly set my vm to 256M video. I can't get 
aero working if this dam rating doesn't finish. I tried clearing the ratins 
and re-running but it didn't help.

Any suggestions?
