Can't get 32bit color in RDP

I have an XP system that I am using to RDP to another XP system that is an XP VM running on ESX.  How do I get 32bit color? I've read some of the answer here, but still not working?

thanks

Terminal services is where the 16-bit color depth limitation is imposed. You can make the following change (as per Ben Armstrong) in the virtual machine's registry to enable 24-bit color:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services]
"fDenyTSConnections"=dword:00000000
"UserAuthentication"=dword:00000000
"ColorDepth"=dword:00000004

Steve Jain says this is sufficient:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services]
"ColorDepth"=dword:00000004

If you disable Integration Components, you can get 32-bit color, but you'll lose the ability to publish an XP application to the Windows 7 desktop.
