    I looked long for this info and thought I'd share it Re: Windows software version and # of supported physical vs. logical processors. That is HT or Dual-Core.

    HT and Dual-core = 1 physical processor as recognized by windows.

    For instance XP Home = license for one physical CPU and 2 logical (that is one HT cpu or one dual-core CPU)

    XP Pro = 2 physical 4 logical

    Server = 4 to 32 depending on version.

    Hope this helps somebody with their set-ups.
