    In an ubuntu 12.04 64bit pc, I created a Windows7 VM in VMWare. Uppon startup VMWare displayed the following messages:
        No 3D support is available from the host.
        Hardware graphics acceleration is not available.
    I run several tests and now I am 100% sure that I do have "Hardware graphics Acceleration" and "3D support" on my host (ubuntu) machine. Details of the tests are here: http://bbb-solutions.blogspot.gr/2014/03/how-to-check-if-ubuntu-1204-has-3d.html.

    But I still get the error messages. It seems to be a vmware problem. While I did find many similar problems in google, no solution worked for me.

    Could you help me?
