Running Quadra 605 System 7.6 36megs ram, Softwindows for Macintosh. I have a windows program (3.1) that I am trying to install. It installs fine then it gets to a point and a message comes up "needs VGA monitor or better". I have it set up for VGA and it shows up in the menu as that. Help, I don't want to buy a PC if I don't have to.

I have SoftWindows PPC 1.0, and I use Windows regularly on a PC, too. Just because you have it set as VGA in the menu doesnt mean Windows realizes its a VGA. In Windows, go to the "Control Panel" in the "Main" program group. There might be a "video setup" control panel there. If not, go to the Program group "Accessories" (or maybe "Main"?) and open up "Windows Setup". Then you'll want to change "display" type.

In my Softwindows manual it says it only supports 640x480 with 16 colors and 320x200 with 256 colors. Maybe your windows program wants 640x480 with 256 and cant get it? Read your manual to see if this is the case for your version of Softwindows. Also, find the requirements for the application you're trying to run. It may require 256 colors with 640x480 resolution.
