Is VMWare WS able to address memory not addressed by Host OS ?

Hello,

I explain why the question.

My Host Windows is not able to address more than 4gb.

If I install 8gb on the PC, will VMWare WS 6.0 be able to find and use the additionnal 4gb for guest VMs ?

Thanks a lot

Best Regards

Nope sorry. WS uses the Host OS calls for memory allocation. If your Host can't see the extra RAM then WS can't use it.
