Description

I've getting a hostmemorylow error on any virtual machines that I run in Virtualbox that are 2GB or more in size. Performance manager indicates two GB are free as Virtualbox run, but if I run anything else that involves cutting and pasting (e.g. snipping tool) Windows indicates I'm out of resources. However, if I start Virtual PC first and then exit, and then run Virtualbox, the a 32-bit virtual machine runs fine in Virtualbox (VPC doesn't support 64-bit guests, so I could test it).
