    Loaded Win XP on the CF 52 to test it out before installing it on a U1
    Then I loaded the OSX Mavericks 3.1 transformation pack.
    A little tweaking and I am ready to try it on a U1.

    Found the issue with XLaunchpad. https://www.xwidget.com/

    It was refusing to show the full page icons. I spent almost a week working on it.

    The solution is that you need graphics hardware acceleration turned up to at least 2 notches from max.
    Might be directX related.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Grabbed this guide online. https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-lower-the-video-card-hardware-acceleration-2624496
    • Reduce by One: Reducing hardware acceleration just one position to the left of "Full" will disable cursor and bitmap accelerations. You might use that level of hardware acceleration if there are problems with your mouse or with images.
      • You'll immediately notice that when this level is enabled, the mouse moves a bit slower than it normally does.
    • Reduce by Two: Moving to the left one more tick disables all cursor and advanced drawing accelerations. Use this setting when you're having issues with images or videos displaying on the screen.
    • Reduce by Three: One more position to the left of "Full" disables DirectDraw and Direct3D accelerations, plus all of the above (cursor and advanced drawing accelerations). This is where you need to be if you're having difficulties using programs that are accelerated using DirectX.
    • Reduce by Four: Everything but basic accelerations is disabled as you go one more level to the left. This setting should be reserved for critical problems only.

    • None: The "None" setting disables all hardware accelerations for the Windows XP video card, and should be used only if your computer is at the point that it quits responding to normal interactions.



    Another option below the hardware acceleration slider (in the Troubleshoot tab) is for write combining. This setting, when enabled, is supposed to improve performance, but because increased performance means there's a greater chance of instability, you can disable write combining to help stop your computer from freezing due to hardware acceleration.




    Disable this feature by removing the check in the box next to Enable write combining. You'll have to restart your computer for it to take effect.
