Hello,

I am getting out of memory error (see below). My app needs to build large arrays and there is not easy way to go around it!  When I see in task manager, the app is not going more than 1.7GB. The system has 2GB RAM and 1TB HDD.  Even I assign 6GB VM, it still goes out of memory! How do I configure the system so my app can use lot more VM? Its XP Professional system.  Interestingly, it does not go oom in debug mode!

Can you go into why you have to use large arrays.
It sounds like there maybe a beeter way to program your project to use less memeory.

thats gotta be a huge array being built to use that much ram. that much VM is going to take a huge amount of time to access and read .

Are you using x64 or 32 bit windows, for the amount of memory you are looking to use you have to consider going to a 64 bit platform and upping your ram from 2 gb or alternatively like stated above look to reprogram and pull a smaller array,

You could increase your ram up from 2gb if you are using a 32 bit machine but you wont see a noticeable jump really you shoudl consider putting 2x2gb sticks in to get you up to the max the 32 bit OS will take

I have an x64 ultimate visa system. VB 2005

Have 8gb memory but get out of memory exception at same point as when I had 4 gb memory. The array should fit 4 time over into this space. Is there another answer to why I am getting this error?
