32-bit Windows OpenGL applications are not 3D-accelerated in a 64-bit Windows guest
|Reported by:||drc||Owned by:|
With VBox 3.2.2, 64-bit Windows OpenGL applications are now 3D-accelerated with 64-bit Windows guests, but 32-bit OpenGL applications still use the software renderer.
The 3.2.2 Guest Additions for Windows appear to install 32-bit versions of the VBoxOGL DLL's in c:\windows\syswow64, but the necessary registry information to enable these is not present in:
If I copy this key over from the 64-bit location
then I can make the 32-bit version of VBoxOGL.dll load, but it subsequently prints several copies of the following error message:
OpenGL Warning: Host doesn't accept our version 7.1. Make sure you have appropriate additions installed!
and the 32-bit OpenGL application is not 3D-accelerated.
