Windows 7: Negative Memory during app install

Negative Memory during app install

So apparently I have -1025 mb of memory

What's the deal? I've run the same program in 1 x64 virtual machine and 1 x86 machine, without issue.

It's probably because I upgraded this machine from 7100 -> 7264.

Does anyone know why the program is seeing -1025 mb? I can finish the install, but then the program won't boot up.

It has something to do with the way Win98 (minimum requirements) applications detect memory & hd space. I have seen the same things happen with HD space

Normally, the offending apps will install with no issue.

Tried running the exe in compatibility mode?

Tried it, no difference.

I'm gonna sit that program out till i get the rtm, cause it seems to be working on the later builds.

That is hilarious, but I cannot explain it. The other guys seem to have though.

It installs in XP mode no problem, that's where it was running before, but since I tried it out on different 7 installs I decided to give it another try on this comp.

The program in question installs in a 64 bit virtual machine that has 1024mb assigned. It installs on a 32 bit live machine with 3 gigs of ram.

I'm gonna try to limit the memory my live 64 bit sees through msconfig and see if that does anything. Any other thoughts?
