memory (RAM) question
I have HP xw8400 Workstation with a dual core intel(R) Xeon (R) CPU @3. 00 GHz, there are 4 GB Ram, however when I look at Fluent memory Status it says:

Physical Page Physical+Page

Total 2097151 KB 522240 KB 2619391 Free 1581244 KB 522240 KB 2103388

Seems like Fluent sees much less than what is available, is this OK? Thank you for your insight, regards, -matt

Re: memory (RAM) question
Win XP 32 bit can address a maximum value of 2 GB RAM: You have to install a 64 bit OS.

Re: memory (RAM) question

Currently, 32-bit editions of Windows are capable of supporting up to 4 gigabytes (GB) of system memory, with up to 2 GB of dedicated memory per process. Windows Professional XP Edition x64 currently supports up to 128 GB of RAM, with the potential to support up to 16 terabytes of virtual memory as hardware capabilities and memory sizes improve.
