VMWare Workstation Memory Usage
Posted on 2009-05-08
I have 8GB RAM installed on my desktop system and running VISTA 32-bit OS on a Duo-Quad Processor. I understand additional 4GB of 8GB is a waste for 32-bit OS.
My question is:
When I run VMWare Workstation for different OS's, am I also restricted to the same memory space as VISTA sees it or VMWare grabs the remaining part of the overall 8GB RAM, and making an effective use of memory.
In the nutshell what I am asking is, do I need to install VISTA 64-bit for VMWare also to recognize the full memory cacapcity.
