I would like to be able to automatically have VMWare span my Guest OS across three monitors. Is there a config file where you can set these parameters? Is there any way to do it from the gui?

Guest OS Windows 7. Host OS Windows 7.

edit the properties of your vm and click on display, then specify the number of monitors you have and the max resolution.

Concur...the only additional comment I have is to set the "video card" property, the VM must be turned off.
