It's because the 4GB limit is the maximum of all memory. That includes a bit for system stuff and the graphics card memory. And my graphics card has 512MB.4 GB - though I'm on XP so only get 3.25. But at the prices these days why have less?-katykaty (September 17, 2007, 02:19 PM)
There is no reason why you should settle for 3.25 Gb of your 4Gb on Windows XP. I posted a number of articles in another thread about WinXP memory management which says you should be able to use the full 4Gb. You may need to set a boot time switch though (although I think it is default).
Some motherboards restrict memory access so it may not be a Windows fault - but losing 0.75 Gb seems a bit excessive which makes me suspect this in't the problem here.-Carol Haynes (September 17, 2007, 03:28 PM)
My understanding was that PDF-XChange Viewer Free wasn't simply a reader but also useful for annotating PDF-documents. My experience of such software is that is not free, and if it is free it comes with some kind of limitation so as to provide an incentive to get the non-free version. I am of the opinion that one should always try to exercise caution when something seems to be too good to be true. The reviews from snapfiles seems to be extremely positive, and that too triggers my critical mind, but I guess I will have to find out for myself now. If it does provide good annotation capabilities for free and with no limitations, then that is all that I need.I've used PDF-XChange Viewer for about a year now and I've had no problems with it.-jzippo (September 17, 2007, 06:18 AM)

Can you add another option:

True - but I think you are stuck with Don't Care or Buy me a beer-Carol Haynes (September 13, 2007, 01:45 PM)
Trouble with 'lite' versions is maintaining two builds - by having an option to turn of advanced features and the updating mechanism which reduces the download size it means there is only one version to maintain. It also means that a user can switch on the extra features if they find they need them without having to download and install a new version.-Carol Haynes (September 02, 2007, 04:15 PM)
