Is it possible to enable hardware acceleration with Java FX on Windows 2008 server?


Question

As discussed in this question, it's possible to detect whether Java FX is using hardware acceleration by passing -Dprism.verbose=true as a system property. When I do this on my Java FX app on Windows 2008 Server R2, it is apparently falling back to the software rendering:

Prism pipeline init order: d3d j2d
Using t2k for text rasterization
Using dirty region optimizations
Prism pipeline name = com.sun.prism.d3d.D3DPipeline
Loading D3D native library ...
        succeeded.
Direct3D initialization failed
Wrong operating system version
(X) Got class = class com.sun.prism.d3d.D3DPipeline
GraphicsPipeline.createPipeline: error initializing pipeline com.sun.prism.d3d.D3DPipeline
*** Fallback to Prism SW pipeline
Prism pipeline name = com.sun.prism.j2d.J2DPipeline
(X) Got class = class com.sun.prism.j2d.J2DPipeline
Initialized prism pipeline: com.sun.prism.j2d.J2DPipeline

My question is, is it possible to force hardware acceleration, say by fooling JFX into thinking I have a different operating system? I'm hoping it might Just Work if I could bypass the OS check somehow.

It is fairly easy : -Dprism.forceGPU=true
