    My OS is win2000 Server with 4G RAM. I have an application that need
    allocate between 2G to 3G RAM.
    In MSDN, I find that in win NT4.0 Enterprise edition and Win2000 Advance
    Server configuration, I can append the flag
    "/3G" in boot.ini so that each process can allocate at most 3G memory, not
    2G RAM in default.

    I try to add this "/3G" in the boot.ini in the WIN2000 Server but each
    process still cannot allocate more than 2G memory. Is there any suggestion?
    Is there any simple method to allow the application can allocate 3G RAM?

    Thanks

    Check out google groups for the past articles in
    microsoft.public.win32.programmer.kernel. This has been discussed before in
    that group.
