VMs and high performance 3D graphics don't usually go together very well.
You can get some DirectX support in VMWare, but it is limited.  See:

If you really need best graphics performance, don't use a VM.

Hi

Even the answer is already accepted, I will give my opinion.

It depends on what VMware do you have?

If yes ESX(i), then forget about 3D :)

This is not supported.

Check here:

If is VMware Workstation, or Server, then you can use the 3D option.
Is not great, but it works fine.

This is a good threat about this

Hope this can help
