    Talking Memory size error in Parallels
    Hi everyone!
    I just installed Parallels 5.0 with a 2 wk free trial activation key. I installed Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit version without difficulty and things run smoothly. However, in the control panel under "RAM", I noticed that Windows only acknowledges that I have 1GB RAM when in fact I have 4GB RAM?!! Is this a configuration issue and if so, how do I go about getting Windows to recognize that I have 4 GB RAM and not just 1 GB?

    Thanks in advance!

    Specs:
    21" iMac 2.9Ghz 16GB RAM & 13"MBP 2.9Ghz i7 8GB RAM 10.10.3, iPhone5 & iPad Air 2 iOS 8.3, ATV3
    Umm are you having any problems in running Windows and its programs ?? Are you experiencing lag/slowness and the like?? If not i wouldnt worry about it as it might be a system problem not acknowledging it. But if there arnt any problems the system could be well running the 4GB ?? Question is if there isnt a problem do you really need Windows to acknowledge it ??

    Cheers

    Remember, Parallels is running Vista in a Virtual Machine not natively. The amount of memory that can be allocated to the Vista VM is controlled by you in the initial setting and setup when you first create the VM. Please refer to the Parallels instructions and help to learn how to increase the memory for your Vista VM.

    Regards.
