Maestro gives an error saying that 3D stereo is not available. I tried to install the latest driver for my graphics card but it failed, complaining about XEN. Turning that off enabled compilation of the driver but the 3D does still not work. Any suggestions?

XEN is a virtual-machine (VM) technology. VMs do not generally make full use of the graphics card and so if Maestro is run on a VM, you will not be able to use the 3D hardware stereo.

To use hardware stereo, you will have to be running on the native or parent OS, not on a VM. Re-installation of your graphics driver might be the fastest way to get the 3D stereo to work.

One VM technology that does use hardware graphics is Parallels, on Mac computers.
