VMware Windows 9x Display Registry Patch


When installing Windows 95, 98, 98SE, or ME under VMware Player or Workstation, installing VMware Tools only provides 4:3 and 5:4 resolutions by default with the video driver; however, I did manage to get 16:9 and 16:10 resolutions working under all Windows 9x versions just by tweaking the Registry (I was a bit annoyed, as most monitors made past 2005 or so use a 16:9 or 16:10 resolution and a widescreen display.) I made this simple registry hack which adds support for these resolutions (such as 1280x800, 1920x1200, 1280x720, and similar) under Windows 9x guests in VMware products.
