    VMWare enable 3D and hardware acceleration on Windows Guest VM's


    Hi there
    If when using a Linux host with VMWare you find you get messages on Windows VM's saying 3D and Hardware acceleration not supported even when you've ticked the enable 3d box in the edit VM configuration from the VMWare menu simply add these 2 lines to the .vmx VM config file with any decent text editor and re-start the VM.

    mks.gl.allowBlacklistedDrivers = "TRUE"
    mks.enable3d = "TRUE"

    be careful though because the mks.enable3d line might already exist -- so in that case only add the allow blacklisted drivers line -- duplicate entries will render the VM inoperative !!!!.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    VMWare VMs Black Screen - Windows 10 3D Accelerator - Graphic Properties not available

    I am running Windows 10 Build 1803 build Citrix Desktops. I am trying to change the properties of the Windows 10 box so that I can turn off 3D Graphic properties as VMs are all in black screen mode. So, based on the suggestions by most of them, it looks
    like we have to turn off the 3D Hardware acceleration. When I right click on the desktop, I get only Display Settings and Personalize option and if I go into Display settings, i do not get to see the options for 3D graphic acceleration as mentioned in the
    below steps As, I do not see Graphic properties at all.

    So, how can I turn it off or what else can be done as these are Citrix Desktops that are showing black screen. So, either you have to boot them serveral times or shut down and bring it up and sometimes they come up to the logon screen and show the windows
    screen or else they are black screen. Clicking on CTRL+ALT+DEL also has issues sometime it brings up the logon window or else none. Just plain black screen.

    In order to disable 3D hardware acceleration, I suggest you to follow the steps below.

    1. Right click on the desktop and select Graphics properties.
    2. Select Basic Mode and hit OK.
    3. Go to the 3D option.
    4. You can disable 3D graphics acceleration from this screen.
    Hope this helps. Please reply for further queries on this.

    Enable 3D / hardware acceleration in VM (VMware)


    Hi folks
    add to the vmware config file (or ~/.vmware/preferences if on Linux Host) the following line :

    mks.gl.allowBlacklistedDrivers = "TRUE"

    Note - you might have to also ensure MESA (Linux Host) is installed or correct graphics driver if you have it.
    In the VM config screen also check the box on display - enable 3d graphics

    Cheers
