I need to use VS 2008 for BIDS and SSRS development. On a new Windows 7 VM, VS2008 is displaying huge fonts and impossible to work with.
I had to right click the VM and select Configure |Hardware | Video , and change the resolution from ‘Best for Retina’ to ‘Scaled’
Open the VM, go into control panel | Display | and change the resolution to 1920 x 1200.
Now VS 2008 will display fine. I’ll change back to the original settings ( Configure | Hardware |Video | ‘Best for Retina’) and (Control Panel | Display | Resolution = 2880×1800)
