Guest Additions not reporting shader model 3 support
|Reported by:||DK707||Owned by:|
I am trying to run Altium Designer 10 in a Windows XP virtual machine and have installed the "experimental" 3D support in the guest and selected the 3D option on the host.
Altium Designer requires DirectX 9.0c which must include shader model 3 support. I have attached a screencapture of the error message I get when I try to enable 3D support within the Altium tool.
This is becoming a major concern as Altium has indicated that the they will phase out the GDI interface and require the DirectX 9.0c to be available to use future versions of their software.
FYI, the dxdiag command gives me the following output:
The file VBoxDisp.dll is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). You may be able to get a WHQL logo'd driver from the hardware manufacturer. To test DirectDraw functionality, click the "Test DirectDraw" button above. Direct3D 7 test results: Failure at step 40 (Creating flipping primary surface with one back buffer): HRESULT = 0x88760064 (error code) Direct3D 8 test results: Failure at step 4 (EnumAdapterModes): HRESULT = 0x8876086c (error code) Direct3D 9 test results: All tests were successful.
Is it normal that the Direct3D version 7,8 tests fail?
If you would like to reproduce this problem, I think the freely available Altium Designer Viewer will also produce this DirectX error message if the hardware 3D support is selected from inside the tool.
