Direct2D RenderTarget.CreateBitmap can't create bitmap larger than 8192x4096 pixels


I have a software using Direct2D to handle images. This software fails when run under VMware Workstation 15 Pro (15.5.6 build-16341506) running on Win10.

The failure occurs when loading any images larger than 8192x4096 pixels. The failure occurs at RendreTarget.CreateBitmap which returns invalid argument error code (0x80070057).

The same application running on the physical machine with the same image runs perfectly well.

I guess that the issue comes from the GPU virtualization (Direct2D make use of the GPU).

My question is: Can I configure something in the VM settings so that large images are supported?
