Specs: Windows 7/ Windwos XP, 4GB
Hi people,

I'd like to work with logic 5.5.1 on windows xp. I installed Windows xp beside Windows 7 on my laptop, because Windwos 7 fails to install logic, it is to old.
My laptop works with 4 GB Ram and this causes the next problem. Logic cannot handle more then 1 GB of Ram.
Now my Question : How can I make windows Xp run on 1 GB ram instead of 4 GB ram ?

thanks for your help,

The easiest way is to download MS Virtual PC (free), install as guest operating system XP and run Logic inside the virtual machine configured with 1 GB of RAM.

You can run XP concurrently with 7 in that way and avoid alternate boot.

Run "msconfig". Click on the "boot.ini" tab. Click "Advanced". In the box next to "MaxMem" enter 1024 (or less).

But I'd also agree with the VM solution (but I'd use VirtualBox rather than VirtualPC).

Did XP ever run with 4Gig? Never mind, that does not address the OP's question, but that kinda had me twitching...

Windows XP will use around 3Gbs of RAM and wont baulk if there is more, it will just ignore it.

A an application that baulks if there is too much RAM, but well within the capability of the OS to handle, does seem a bit strange to me.

I've known a few programs that wouldn't run if you had too much RAM. Not well-behaved ones, of course, but they do exist.
