I am changing the HeapDecommitFreeBlockThreshold on a Exchange 2003 server and having problems in the registry
Posted on 2006-04-03
The solution to this is so simple, yet so difficult. i came across this possible issue in the documentation on the MS website. i dutifully proceeded to open the registry editor and created the DWord value. No Problem. However when I try to change the value from the default "0" to the recommended "0x00040000" the editor does not allow me to type the little "x" in the second character position for the Hex value. I have tried putting the value in in decimal, "262144" and then clicking on "Hex", but that gives me a Hex value of "40000" which I believe has the same meaning as "0x00040000" but it looks different and I'm hesitant to the point of not willing to click out of it and reboot. I have seen similar issues posted hear on EE and they all get pointed to the article on MS Tech Net or the KB article which never mention anything but the "0x00040000" value with the 'x" in it. Could someone please give me some advice about the small "x". and not being able to enter it in the registry editor?
