XMBC on headless server 08 - azler - 2012-08-20 12:57

I am trying to install and setup XBMC on a windows 08 server running under ESXI but am getting an error when I launch it.

I have searched this forum high and low yet to find a resolution.

So far I have tried:
giving the VM 128mb memory & enabling 3d support
Updating the driver to the latest VM one
updating direct X
editing the Guisettings XML file and setting it to tabbed

Here is the log file:

I appears to be CRenderSystemDX::CreateDevice causing the problem. Anyone know anymore tricks to get this working?

The idea was to use XBMC to stream media from my file server to my media player over Upnp.
