"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Oops, sorry, I forgot to mention I am using Delphi v1.

Use an API function called MemManInfo.  It returns a record called MemManInfo.  Heres the structure for it:

  TMemManInfo = record
    dwSize: Longint;
    dwLargestFreeBlock: Longint;
    dwMaxPagesAvailable: Longint;
    dwMaxPagesLockable: Longint;
    dwTotalLinearSpace: Longint;
    dwTotalUnlockedPages: Longint;
    dwFreePages: Longint;
    dwTotalPages: Longint;
    dwFreeLinearSpace: Longint;
    dwSwapFilePages: Longint;
    wPageSize: Word;

For more info, consult the WINAPI.HLP file.
