FS9 in Vista (3GB Patch -> (Command line)

Recommended Posts

Guest XQ-NUE

Hello,as FS is only able to use 2048MB of RAM it is possible to change this to a higher value. In XP you could do this by the Boot.ini file but in Vista this is not able anymore. Now you have to open the DOS Window and have to write a command to increase the value.Does somebody know the command Line I have to write?Thanks for help

just to avoid further misconceptions, there is a 4096MB limit on the amount of virtual memory that a 32-bit operating system can access. Windows by default allocates half of this to applications and the other half to the operating system. This is true for all applications, not just FS. The 3GB switch can allocate more memory to an application and less to the operating system. There is a downside because problems can arise that if the opersting system has too little virtual memory. Some graphics cards use part of the operating system's allocation.
