HyperSizer FEM viewer in VBOX
« on: April 30, 2015, 01:58:40 PM »
I am trying to get HyperSizer to work in a Windows 7 Enterprise virtual machine (on Xubuntu 14.04.2). I have hypersizer 7.1.20 and my issue is that I cannot access the FEM viewer. I receive the following error:
Can't find a compatible Direct3D depth buffer.

I have followed the steps outlined here: ( to enable the 3D Acceleration, but still receive the same error.

How do I get the FEM viewer to work in VBOX?

HyperSizer will operate in a Windows Virtual machine, but the graphics form will most likely not work because it requires Direct3D which is not supported natively on most virtual machines.
