Windows XP virtual machine does not see more than 256 MB video memory

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac

Symptoms

I assigned my Windows XP virtual machine 1 GB of video memory, but it still shows only 256 MB.

Cause

Windows XP does not support more than 256 MB of video memory in any environment. It is Microsoft Windows limitation.

Resolution

You can either set video memory to 256 MB in Windows XP, or create a new virtual machine with Windows Vista/7 installed, then it will recognize 1 GB of video memory.
