Hi,

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;
  end;

For more info, consult the WINAPI.HLP file.

Stuart.
