unable to install vmware image on 32 bit windows machine

VMware Server 2.0 (64- & 32-bit Vertica) VMware Workstation 7.0 (64- & 32-bit Vertica) I am trying to install the above VMWare images on 32bit windows machine, but its allways getting installed as 64 and giving error. Can anyone help


  • Hi Ranghunath, we will look into this an see if we can figure out why you are receiving an error message. Thanks for letting us know!
  • Can you please share the error message you are receiving, as well as a link to the images you are downloading and attempting to use? It is possible to run a 64-bit Virtual machine on a 32-bit OS, but it requires use of processor level virtualization extensions, which are vt-x for intel chips, or amd-v for AMD chips. VMWare makes a small utility that can verify if your particular setup is compatible. Link provided below. Give this utility a shot and reply back with the results.
