Ok..Question. Our company has moved from workstations to Pano (Virtual Desktops) no computer at desk. We installed 2012 Civil 3D. Files open and close ok, but crosshairs are slow or lag. Also mtext is painful slow. Suggestions we have tried include: Changing Windows 7 to Classic, Turn off bitlocker, trun off selectioncycle, turn off dynamic inputs, unloading Ribbon with no improvement
I have attempted to adjust (turn on) the 3d acceleration, but as you would expect "Crash" since Civil 3D is running on the server and piped through the network to the Pano box, there is no graphics card at each computer. Attached are the specs for what I can see as my virtual desktop.
Question is without 3D acceleration are we out of luck, or is it possible to allocate more graphic resources via software?
Check the KB there is a Performance hotfix for 2012 specifically related to cross hair lag
