I dont think there is a way to limit the amount of memory an application is allowed to use in .net
But what you can do to keep memory usage to a minimum is to allocate objects as late as possible and dispose of them as soon as you can.
you can also do a GC.Collect() right after disposing of objects to force the frameworks garbage collector to clean things up..

As far as i know all memory management in .net is handled by the framework and the OS, thats why all vb.net code is "managed" so you dont have to deal with this stuff...

Hope this clears things up a bit....
