Thanks for sharing this solution! I'm dying to play the good old Settlers IV again.
Everything went safe and sound until I got to installing Settlers IV in the Virtual Linux-system. When executing "Autorun.exe" and choosing to "Install The Settlers IV" the splash screen shows up and the setup process begins, but then suddenly I get the warning message: "This program needs a resolution of VGA or better." and the setup terminates!
I've tried to change the resolution and the graphics card in the Virtual Linux-system, but nothing works. I've checked if there is anything I can do with the settings in Virtual Box - S4-UBL, but nothing helps.
Has anyone got any clue about how to get around this???
Zarja99, have you tried to install the 192.61 drivers? I assume you have a desktop computer with the Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT? Then the standard 192.61 drivers from Nvidia should do the trick! That way you don't have to use VirtualBox. Follow the link below and choose your platform. (Don't forget to keep a set of working drivers available, if the new drivers wouldn't work)
