I made a new Windows 7 machine and installed the guest additions without
the 3D support, verified that the XPDM files were installed and now the
machine booted to 1280x720 at all 25 monitors and my software acutally run
out of memory for the NV12/H264 buffers so I guess if I fix that I should
be able to go to 1920x1200, thanks for the pointers on XPDM, I'll fix
everything on my side with the memory and try again.
