Guest will not open full screen using host display resolution

    The default (and optimal) screen resolution for my Dell Latitude laptop is
    1400x1050. I set a Windows XP Pro guest to open in Full Screen using the
    host screen resolution as default... however, it does not seem to work...
    opening full screen at a lower resolution instead.

    In addition, when checking the display properties in the guest I could not
    even find the Dell default resolution as an option.

    Does anyone know why this is so?

  2. Hi Ray,

    This works just fine on my Dell. Have you installed VPC SP1? Do you
    have the latest additions installed inside of the guest (13.306)?

    I was able to get it to work. Turned out the "Use guest operating system
    screen resolutions" option was mistakenly selected. Switching it back to
    "Use any screen resolution" resolved the problem.
