Thank you for your response. Once my models have stopped running on both VMs, I will shut down both and then try to make more multiple copies of XP Mode.
Sorry for bugging you again, but in your experience with Windows XP Mode, what is the most efficient number of VMs that can be run at the same time (4? 6? 8? 10?)? With two VMs running on a 8GB RAM computer, I have allocated 2GB to each VM and I am getting good run times for my models. If I am able to upgrade to 24GB RAM, how many VMs could I efficiently run? As well, should I allocate more than 2GB RAM for even better model run times? My models are in FORTRAN language and I am using a COMPAQ FORTRAN compliler.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
