Improve VMWare Console Mouse Control on Windows 2008

VMWare Tools on Windows 2008 leaves the default video driver installed, this causes laggy mouse controls when using the console to access the server.

To resolve this go to Device Manager and update the driver on the Standard VGA Adapter from:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\VMware\drivers\wddm_video
This will install a VMware SVGA 3D (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM) driver, reboot the server when it's convenient and mouse control will be as good as it was under Windows 2003.
