    When an application changes the screen resolution, VPC disables live
    resolution changing. All this means is that you can't drag the window
    to a larger size. It shouldn't cause the game not to start.
    VPC doesn't have an nVidia video card. The video card emulated is an
    S3 Trio, full details of all the emulated hardware in a VM can be
    found in the VPC Help.

    See here for info on running Diablo and Diablo II in VPC:
