I am trying to find a driver for Windows 7/8/10 to use the "vmvga" display driver with QEMU+KVM.

For Linux, this driver is available by default, and for OSX there's VmsVGA2, but where can I find the correct driver to use with Windows and QEMU 2.11.1 (included with Ubuntu 18.04).

Right now, when I specify vmvga in libvirt, Windows will fall back to the default display adapter. It is not available in the virtio iso, nor can I seem to find it anywhere on the web.

vmvga is the virtual hardware under VMWare. The Windows driver is part
of the VMWare extensions usually installed from a disk image which is
part of VMWare itself.  It is thus mostly useful when the virtual
machine is migrated between qemu and VMWare.

I don't know id the driver can be legally extracted from VMWare products or not.
