Quick note to users running VMware Fusion on a Retina Macbook Pro

Just a quick note to folks lucky enough to get their hands on a Retina Macbook Pro. A small number of users have mentioned an issue with their Windows Virtual Machine not maintaining a constant screen resolution. We are here to report the quick fix.

From the applications folder right click on VMware Fusion, and select: "get info". 

Then from the info window check the box titled: "Open in low resolution"


Once this box has been selected, you are good to go. Windows will match the screen resolution of OS X just like you would expect.

    Fusion needs a proper retina support with two modes:
    – render client OS screen using currently set OSX scaling and resolution (same backing)
    – render client OS screen using 1:1 pixel mapping (using 1:1 backing, as can be requested by application)
    – render to fullscreen using all resolutions exposed by OSX, a set of HiDPI ones and native ones.

    I tried this and as I havent got version VM 5 It does not give the option you refer to ?

    It does not give me the option to “open in Low res”

    At the same time perhaps I should warn you – be careful what you
    wish for. The final inch or so is then leveled with a mixture
    of clay and water and left to dry before final smoothing and sanding ‘ the choice is yours. Garden sheds are no longer just a dreary collection of loose boards hidden away at the back of the garden.
