Using fit-VGA with fit-PC3 in Windows XP

Post by Andy »

Hi there,

I have 5 questions regarding fit-VGA and fit-PC3:

1) Does it work with Windows XP ?
2) If it works, then does XP need to be patched like Windows 7 ?
3) If Windows XP does need to be patched, does it use the same patch and installation method as Windows 7 (i.e. http://fit-pc.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=77&t=2644) ?

These next questions apply to both Windows XP and Windows 7:

4) When using fit-VGA, do we still get the full benefit of hardware acceleration ?
5) After having patched Windows 7 or XP (if applicable), is it possible to simply unplug the VGA monitor and attach an HDMI or DVI monitor instead, without having to un-intstall the patch ?

Thanks once again for your help

Andy

Hi Andy

Here are your answers

1) Yes. It was tested with WinXP
2) Please use the attached patch with the instructions from the Windows 7 post
3) Refer paragraph 2
4) Yes
5) In most cases yes, but if you have a problem, you'll need to remove the EDID emulation registry entry to get the correct EDID data
