    I had another post about some problems in Revit 2008 regarding a very small text size for the "temporary dimensions." I have narrowed it down to being a video driver problem. The thing is, I can't seem to install the older videocard drivers manually - I need an INF file. If anyone knows where I can get this INF file, or a workaround to installing the older drivers, I am in need of your assistance.

    There are only 2 files that Windows XP uses for the Parallels Video Driver:

    prlvideo.dll
    prlvideo.sys

    Everything else is for Direct3D I am assuming. I have tried overwriting those files with the older ones, but I lose the ability to resize the window and have the resolution follow it, and I get a superimposed mouse cursor in Parallels - a white on top of a black or the other way around.

    Thanks for any help!

    OK. I'm running Parallels 3.0. Is it possible to install the video driver from a previous version of parallels, while using parallels 3.0? Thanks.
