    I read in a lot of places that disabling the graphics hardware acceleration
    might be forbidden with Windows Vista.
    I also have a computer/graphics card like this: the slider/option in
    "Troubleshooting" is missing and it says changing this setting is forbidden
    by the driver.

    My question: How can I detect programmatically that disabling the hardware
    acceleration is prohibited?

    This is useful for hiding the respective option in our software in this case.

    Thank you in advance

  2. Hi Ulrich,

    You might try posting again in Microsoft.public.development.device.drivers -
    those folks tend to be more experienced in questions like this.
