Windows 7: memory limit on 32-bit applications running on 64-bit windows?

Windows 7 home premium x64
 
 

i believe the 192gb max on ultimate is for future proofing the os personally

if your running a 64bit version of windows most software out there has a x86(32b) and a 64 (x64) versions to help implement the addition of ram and processor limits

but to answer your original question 32bit programs are still limited to 2 gb of ram no matter if your running 64 bit or not

Ultimate is designed to be able to run on computers that no home user would ever be able to afford.
