It took me a while to get back to my Windows 7 box too see, but try 
looking in

C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\RPCEmu\hostfs

On RISC OS (3.5 or higher) video resolution is no longer controlled by 
mode numbers, but by the loading of a MDF (Monitor Definition File), a 
per-monitor spec file that lists all the available modes. Once you've 
installed a !Boot, you'll find quite a few MDFs are available to 
select in the Configure app, and that should let you change to a 
larger mode via the Display Manager icon (second from right). Also you 
can create your own MDF with your own modes using a program called 
!Makemodes is the default MDFs don't have quite the mode you're 
looking for.

Can you send me the logfile that's generated

C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\RPCEmu\rpclog.txt

And tell me which version of risc os you're using?
