    Got a problem using Windows XP as a Guest i SUSE 10 with 1280 X 1024 resolution (Nvidia FX5200 graphics card).

    Virtual machine is fine in full screen mode but when going back to Windowed mode I can't re-size the window and it's too big (Vertical orientation) for my mobitor -- can't get to the Windows START / Menu.

    If I reduce the resolution to 1024 X 768 it works fine.

    On the host (SUSE 10.0) in X I'm using 1280 X 1024 resolution.

    I've got a LCD monotor quite capable of 1280 X 1024 resolution.


    Great product otherwise.

    Cheers

    Thank you for your note.
    Automatic guest resolution change feature will come shortly to our Linux/Windows versions and already implemented in OSX beta version.

    I was hoping that the Windows/Linux version hadn't been forgotten. With all the frantic work being done on the OSX version it looked like we were taking a back seat on the improvement front.
