Hi,I have a problem.
Now I want to use the 3D function.
And I have installed the nVidia Driver.
But there is a errer when I start the vm using command:

VBoxManage modifyvm xp --vrde on \
--vrdeaddress "" \
--vrdemulticon on --vrdereusecon on \
--vrdevideochannel on \
--vrdevideochannelquality 90 \
--vrdeproperty VNCPassword=111111 \
--accelerate3d on

VBoxManage startvm xp --type headless.

the error is here:

VBoxManage: error: This VM was configured to use 3D acceleration. However, the 3D support of the host is not working properly and the VM cannot be started. To fix this problem, either fix the host 3D support (update the host graphics driver?) or disable 3D acceleration in the VM settings (VERR_NOT_AVAILABLE)
VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component Console, interface IConsole

thank you.
