    the memory map you showned in the video (memory transitition.png) where can we download it?

    windev

    @Phililp Saunders: It's from the Windows Internals books/David Solomon kernel course.  It is copyrighted to them, so I can't make it available for download Sad

    new laptop, but it's maybe because I didn't turn it off since a few days ago. Maybe. I hope.

    @siodmy: The repurposed of 0-4 is expected. It is the 5-7 that matter. You are getting enough memory pressure on 5 (1.6Gb -- x8 reused) to raise interest at least. Adding a few gigs will definitely help in those times - its not critical though.

    Andrew, Please update your Flash player! you should be up to 11.4.402.265
    you are still using the old 11.3.300.271 which is exploitable. Great Show, I hope you continue to make new shows every week, I look forward to them.

    @James G: I use a vhd for the show and it only runs during taping (so I don't add features to the install without you seeing it). The next time I prepare for a show, I'll make sure to give it some time to do the updates. Can't set a bad example can I!

    The show will be weekly for at least another ~10 weeks based on the current episode recording schedule. We tape a few at a time if it is the same topic.

    Next is vmmap, then we have a special edition, then inbox tools. After that in a yet to be decided order is 3+ on Windows Performance Toolkit, 2+ on Procdump, 4+ on Debugging Tools for Windows, Network Monitor, Fiddler and PsTools. In the maybe bucket is audio, video, printing and device troubleshooting (1 each). We will also probably do a live show on Channel 9 Live at Build.

    Lots and lots of shows to watch!  If your favorite tool isn't in that list, drop us an email at defragtools@microsoft.com or write a comment and we'll add it to the list or move it forward.

    I have a question: you talked about Hyper-V and a vm starts and says to the memory manager hey get me a big part of your ram, and it needs to be continuous. This may work for a fixed memory vm, but what about dynamic memory?

    The startup memory block can be 1gb and later need a little bit more, and perhaps find that memory has been occupied by other vm's...

    Thanks
