I have Windows XP virtual machines installed on a VMware ESX server. I connect to these machines via VMware Infrastructure Client, however there is a significant interface lag. For example when clicking on a file, there is sometimes a second or two lag before the file becomes highlighted.
Note: the VM tools are installed, the hardware acceleration on the monitor is set to full, and the system's visual effect are set to "adjust for best performance."
Question: What can I do to reduce the lag?
