    Disable 'graphics hardware enhancements' in Photoshop CS6?


      Hi Everyone,

      I have what is hopefully a straightforward question: I'm running Photoshop CS6 on a virtual machine. (That sounds weird but believe me when I say it works fine in a VDI environment and that's not the issue.)


      When it launches, it predictably throws the familiar error message 'Photoshop has encountered a problem with the display driver," etc etc. This error message is expected since it's the VMware Tools driver.


      What I'm wondering is if there's any way to disable this popup. It says it has "temporarily disabled enhancements which use the graphics hardware." What are those enhancements, and how do I disable them permanently?


      Thanks in advance!


      edit: I have tried going into Preferences>Performance and tinkering with GPU options, but it's ghosted out as I have Design Standard.
