setting 6400x4800 resolution in guest

I have tried setting a resolution of 6400x4800 in windows 7 guest running under VMware workstation (ver 9) and in another guest under ESXi. The max I could get is 2560x1920.

Both places I have set appropriate svram size and other options in .vmx file. Even with vmwareresolutionset.exe I have not been able to set higher resolution.

Tried proxmox few years back but could not get what I needed.

Any tool or any other vm solution is fine for me. Thanks in advance.

Do you have the most up to version of VMware Tools installed in the guest?  Even so, I don't know if the VMware Tools allow such high resolution. Do you have a special video adapter for the host machine?

Have you tried using remote desktop to connect to the VM?

Thanks for your answers.

I have the most recent VMware tools available for the VMware workstation 9.

I have tried from vnc remote desktop but it did not fix the issue

why such high resolution? It is because I wanted to take a printscreen of some code with code browser (source insight with large font) and print on A3 paper with good print quality. There are also many more uses with such resolution mainly for print purpose.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

and you have a resolution of  6400x4800 in your physical computer, what screen are you using ?

Why "vnc remote desktop" and not the Windows Builtin RDP? Or are you using a home version of Windows that doesn't support Remote Desktop?

not physical computer.

I have not tried RDP as I had disabled it. But I don't think it will change with RDP as with vmware console also no change.

That is my point if it does not exist on a physical computer, it's unlikely to exist on a virtual computer.
