Choppy Graphics/Mouse in windows 2008 x64 VMWare console

Here is a tip shared to me. This will help with those Win2k8 werver.

  1. Do your vmware tools install and hardware acceleration as normal
  2. In Device Manager, right-click on the top of the device tree and select, Install Legacy Hardware
  3. Tell windows that you want to choose the driver to install
  4. Click Have Disk
  5. Browse to c:\program files\common files\vmware\drivers\wddm_video and select the catalog file there.
  6. Follow the prompts to finish the installation and then reboot
  7. Go back into Device manager and remove the old video driver.
  8. Everything should be smooth.
