Unfortunately, the VMware video drivers for F10 do not support the
required acceleration needed to run Desktop Effects when running F10 in
a VM on Workstation 6.5. That's why you're getting the blank white
screen.

F10 in a VM on Workstation 6.5 + Desktop Effects = Bad Idea.

thanks a lot Chris for your feedback.
this is what i thought...

I have to say that before migrating to F10 i wanted to test it under VMWare 6.5 that's was the purpose.
