Question Force screen Resolution??

Please help??

I'm trying to get some Lego software working on my brothers PC, and the software doesn't work under XP!!!

So I've installed VMware and created a ME machine.

The software is now installed but will not run in anything other than 800X600 16Bit.

I suspect that Vmware doesn't have the correct drivers for my monitor, as this resolution/Colour setting isn't available.

Has anyone got a solution??

I think if i could get some sort of software that can force this display or emulate it?
