hi guys

i want to play a game secretly on My Work computer

i know my Boss wouldn't mind because we have a lot of free time But i don't want to leave leftovers from the game installation after i done playing

so i decided to Play in Vmware

but the Game is Two slow and laggy not like running it in non VmWare environment

the Vmware OS is XP sp1
and the main os is vista

is there a way to Play in a virtual machine in a similer or a little slower than the Main os
thanks infront



BTW i tried Raising the amount of memory for the VM didn't work
also i tried to Raise the Number of cores For the VM also didn't work

XP sp1? Maybe sp3 could make a difference, but I think it would be small.

I'm not sure if you must run it in VMware, but you could try running it in a sandbox. Installation is another matter, as many games need admin-accounts to incorporate it in the OS.
Or try DOSBox and play all those old games without much leftovers... (see Abadonia for example)

Or try this little pong game I found at Miekiemoes' blog :)

Hi todo,

I'm going to close this thread as the original question seems to violate our terms of use here at GeekstoGo.

We cannot help you get around any administrative restrictions imposed on a school, work or other network not owned and operated by yourself. These restrictions can include (but are not limited to): website blocking/filtering, software installation, email retention, software configuration, network/internet usage, network configuration, forum or chat room restrictions, game server restrictions, or any other actions that are deemed "unauthorized" by the owners/administrators of the network in question.


If you have any questions about this decision, please feel free to contact me via Private Message to discuss this issue further.

Kindest Regards,
SweetTech.
