Exchange 2010 install

Exchange 2010 install
I have vmware workstation installed on windows 7- 64 bits (4GB RAM).
For test purposes I would like to install Exchange Server 2010 as Virtual machine with all roles( Mailbox/CAS/Hub) on the same box which is also Windows 2008 Active Directory.
I don't have any preference on the edition of exchange server, it could be just standard and that's fine.
I wonder if this is possible regarding the physical memory size I have on the computer.

Thanks

Follow the link below to see the recommended and minimum memory requirements for Exchange Server 2010:

For multiple roles, the minimum supported is 8 GB.
I don't know what will happen if you try to install them when there is less than that available, though..

Yes, it is, I have a test version of Exchange 2010 with Windows 2008 R2 running on my Windows 7 laptop, it runs with around 2GB of RAM, al be it very slowly, but if it's only for testing then you should be fine.

this is for test purposes only---
I am not sure if 4GB RAM will be useful for testing. In addition is a VM
