I have a machine ( Windows 7) that has 4 cores. But when I run my Windows XP visualization using VMWare workstation, only one core is available for that visualization. alt text

How to make sure that the virtual OS can also use 4 cores?

Configure the VM to use 4 cores when you first create it.

first created what? The virtual windows XP OS? Or is there anyway to configure an existing virtual instance? – Graviton Jul 28 '10 at 12:57
The virtual machine itself. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 28 '10 at 13:34
