My pc at work has just been upgraded and I am now running Win 7. All apps have been migrated or updated to run on Win 7. But there is one legacy app that requires XP or XP Pro. The host pc runs version Win 7 and the virtual pc runs XP Pro. The help contractor for the legacy software indicates that to run properly the app needs to operate on a higher quality Color display setting. The virtual XP device Display Properties> Settings> Color Quality allows only the Medium 16 bit setting not the High 32 bit variety.
My old pc was cloned and copied to create the new one. So the only difference is that the old pc Host was XP Pro with the virtual also running XP Pro while the new pc Host runs Win 7 and it's virtual runs XP Pro.
I've read through and tried several search results, but can't find a solution. How can I change my virtual XP Pro from 16-bit color to 32-bit color?
The legacy app works as a stand-alone and also provides a VBA Add-In for Excel. The app itself functions just fine, but it's the Excel Add-in that I rely on most.
