Tutorial Windows 95 1366x768 Display fix for VMware
Nerdulater posted a topic in Windows 9x/MEIf your screen size is 1366x768 and you use Windows 95, You may notice that the display does not auto resize after VMware tools is installed. This is how i fixed that issue. 1. If you haven't already, Install VMware Tools. 2.After the installer finishes. You will see a notepad window telling you how to install the SVGA drivers, which we will ignore. 3.In that notepad window, Go to File,Open and go to, C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools\drivers\video (Sorry in advance if that's wrong) 3b. Go to the file type menu and set it to 'All files' then right click on VMX_svga and click properites. Then uncheck the 'read-only' attribute. Save the changes and open the file. 3c.You'll then see the driver file. Highlight the whole 'MODES?,800x600' text and copy and paste it. Make sure there is spaces. Then change the '800x600' to '1366x768' or desired resoultion and save it. 4. Then install the driver as intended. Using Display properites or device manager. Note: If the screen does not resize, you can try changing the resoultion to 600x480 or 800x600 and resizeing again. Comment down below if there's a problem with this guide. -Nerdulater
Majority of people downgrade their VMware version to 5.0 for the legacy sound driver,Which is the SB128. But you also lose some features that were introduced in newer versions. This is a way to install the current sound driver, Which is the Ensoniq ES1370. Sound Driver for the ES1370. Supported: Windows 95/98/Me 1.Download and drag and drop the driver to your 9x VM. 1b.If that dosen't work, or if you do not want to install VMware Tools,Create a ISO/CD using a program such as ImgBurn/UltraISO etc with the driver in it. 2. Open and install the driver. It should be quick. If everything goes well,You will see a found new hardware dialog with the ES1370. 2b. On 95/98, You may see a 'Please insert this disk' error. It is ok to close that message. 3.Reboot and enjoy! If it dosen't work? If it dosen't work, Check your temp folder (Which can be accesed with %temp% in the run box) and there may be a folder with the drivers. Copy this folder to your desktop and try installing it using the 'Add new hardware wizard' control panel item. PROS: Full compabitlity with VMware, Possibly better sound. CONS: No MIDI support. I can't remember if it also dosen't work on SB128. Annoying message about no MIDI support. It's a dialog box at logon. Windows NT 4 also has a version of this driver. NT 4/Alternate CD Version In theory the installation process is close to the 9x driver. Comment below if there's any problems. -Nerdulater

You've gotta love virtualization for providing a "have cake and eat it too" solution. I personally prefer VMware Workstation. On your hardware run the OS that makes the most sense for your needs, AND run all the others for evaluation, testing, learning to tweak, keeping up with tech, etc. in virtual machines. Networking can be used to easily transfer data - and possibly best of all - you can make snapshots and within seconds revert a system that's been hosed back to a known state. -Noel
I haven't posted here in the MSFN forums for a while, but I have a problem here. I updated to VMware Player 6.0.7 on my Windows Vista host machine and for some reason, I can't get the sound to work on any of my guest OSes (Windows NT 3.51, Windows 95 and Windows 2000) that requires the legacy Sound Blaster 16 emulated sound card. For example, I've been running Windows NT 3.51 SP5 as a guest OS and although, the OS installs the Sound Blaster 16 emulated card, it doesn't work at all! Edit: Nevermind! I solved the problem. I had to uninstall r277 of the Realtek High Definition Audio drivers and revert to the audio drivers that came with my ASUS motherboard. The end result is that the sound in VMware now works! Incase, I ever decide to update VMware Player or reinstall it, I may have to reinstall the audio drivers again.
