Re: New Memory RAM Installation
Although upgrading to SP1 will change the reported amount of memory you have
in Windows Vista, it does not increase the amount of memory that you can
use. This is a limitation of a 32 bit environment and there is nothing you
can do about it except to use a 64 bit Windows Vista instead.
Note that switching to a 64 bit Operating System doesn't get you as much
memory increase as you might think because now 64 bit data is used instead
of 32 bit and that increases memory usage.
