Trying to convert 32 bit windows xp vm to x64 hardware for migration testing

I’m working on deploying Win 7 x64 to all of our clients, they are x64 ready machines but most are running 32 bit operating systems. I have a 32bit VM that I want to play with, but I’m having problems converting the VM to x64 virtual hardware so I can attempt my tests. I want to use a VM so I can snapshot and go back and try a few different things out. With VMware […]

64-bit Linux hosted on a Mac

From what I can tell, VirtualBox does not have a 64-bit binary for the Mac, and VMWare does not provide a Player build for MacOS. Are there any virtualization options for running a 64-bit guest OS on a Mac host? VirtualBox will run 64bit guest operating systems on MacOS X. See http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch03.html for more info. Check more discussion of this question. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook share via Reddit Share with […]

Why Oracle 11g on windows default installation keeps increasing memory usage even when idle?

I installed Oracle 11g on my Windows XP 64 bit desktop with pretty much the default options. Now when I start the database, it just keeps increasing the memory usage few hundred KB at a time even when the database is not in use. At the moment I am looking at Windows Task Manager and it is showing oracle.exe using more than 1.4 G and counting. What’s happening? How can I set a maximum limit […]

Changes made to httpd config file not taking effect

I am trying to configure apache on a 64-bit system running Windows 7. I installed apache using a win-32 installer (32-bit installer, which I guess is the reason behind problems). The installation was successful and I can browse to localhost in the browser. Problem But, I am not sure where to do the apache config changes. There is one httpd-win file inside Apache GroupApache2conf but no httpd.conf file. I did some changes inside the httpd-win […]

With Windows Server 2008, when do I need 32-bit and when do I need 64-bit?

I am getting a Windows server with the option for Windows Server 2008 32-bit and Windows Server 2008 64-bit. I will only be running IIS7 and SQL Server 2008 Express. Which should I use and what are the indications? If you need to run 64-bit applications such as Exchange Server, you need 64-bit. If you have more than 4 GB of memory, or plan to have them in the future, you need 64 bit. Also, […]

PCIe sound card drivers certified for MS Windows Server 2008?

I am looking for options on sound cards with drivers certified for use on Windows Server 2008 x64 (required for a Nuance/Dragon product)… Google searches reveal lots of rumors that SoundBlaster and ASUS cards might work okay with drivers from Windows Update. Others say you can get these cards to work by disabling the signed driver requirement–which is not an acceptable solution here. The only card I find whose manufacturer says the drivers are supported […]

How do make 64-bit Apache behave as 32-bit one?

My web host only provides 64-bit OS, but the 64-bit Apache webservers take too much memory and occasionally lead to thrashing, under not too much external load. Is there any way to configure Apache to use less memory, or do you suggest any other configuration? My server has 256MB RAM and runs one wordpress and two other subdomains with static pages. Current Apache process configs as shown by Webmin are:- Min processes: 10 Max processes: […]

ASP.NET performance decrease between 32bit/64bit server

We are currently in the process of upgrading our 32bit production server to a more powerful 64bit server whilst upgrading to ASP.NET 4. However, upon doing some light load testing we seem to be having a performance decrease! I have created a simple load test with a constant load of 20 users performing a few simple use cases and compared the results: As you can see, the highest performing config is the existing 32 bit […]

x64 print driver keeps asking for x64 windows disk
