  • Question

  • Does Windows 7 and windows xp handle the download of images the same. As far as memory goes? Does xp load them on the hdd and Windows 7 load them into memory? Where can I find information about this?

  • How the image is loaded from the database can be only answered by the software/programmer who coded the software. I don't know what he did. Were are unable to answer this, sorry.

    All pictures are loaded to the RAM before displaying them.

  • Thanks for getting back to me.

      I work for a cancer diagnostic lab. We have doctors that will view images of cells on their computer though a propriatery application that our company uses. The pictures of the cells are color and are kept in a database on our server. I'm trying to understand when the doctor views the Images if xp temporarily loads them on the hdd for the doctor to view them. Or if Windows 7 handles them differently. I've been told (by a mister know it all at work) that it wouldn't matter if we purchased a quad core, or a dual core with 4threads xp will only be so fast. And it won't matter. I say, "it should matter."  The company hasn't upgraded the software and hardware to work with Windows 7. I was thinking of running Windows 7 in xp mode. But can you run windows 7 64 bit with windows xp 32 bit and get the advantage of using more ram?

  • Well first of all Any Image which is displayed is first loaded on RAM.

    Talking about 32bit and 64bit OS, if you have a RAM of 4GB or more then you have to install a 64 bit Windows as 32bit Windows can not address Memory of size 4GB or more than that.

    If you want to run Windows 7 you don't need to upgrade any hardware, if you already have a dual core or quad core processor.
