Parallels 6 Windows memory set limit question.

    I remember in P5, you can set the amount of memory given to a Windows VM, while also setting the maximum amount of memory allowed for the VM. These were two different settings, one in the VM options, and the other I think was in the Parallels preferences.

    I could not find the same settings in Parallels preferences in P6, can any tell me how to get to this setting, or is there something similar I can do to set the hard limit of memory use for Windows? Right now it just seems the VM will suck up as much memory as it can, leaving only 25MB out of 4GB system memory free, while I explicitly told it to use only 2GB of the system memory.

  2. Any luck figuring out the answer to your question?

    Nope, no one has responded to me... I have since used VMWare Fusion, because it seems to fit better with what I do, and doesn't kick my WiFi off on Snow Leopard like P6 does.
