why would you want to do this? are you talking about older drivers or the 4.22 for NT? In either case this shoudl not work... not too sure why since I am not a programmer but still...

If I'm not mistaking Matrox removed all virtual desktop features after the 4.26 drivers (I'm pretty sure those have the feature).
So if you are using a G400 you are out of luck. No 4.x drivers will work with that card.

virt. desktop also removed from all certified drivers

well, out of ignorance or w.h.y. I supposed that the virtual desktop feature was supplied by qdesk which fed data, or something, about it to the actual card 'drivers' - any of the 'complete' powerdesk installs I have examined do not have drivers for G400 except 5.xx which don't have virt desktop?

I have tried to install 4.51 (G200 drivers) but got a message about 'no matrox card installed'!!

what d'ya think?
