I have a computer with 4 gigs of memory (2.75 available due to 1 gig GPU/graphics card and BIOS)
I use this computer for AutoCAD and 3D Rendering of CAD drawings. When my drawings get too large, or when I render, I always get an error that says I'm running out of memory. Task manager claims my system is only using 1.06 gigs of memory (remember I have 2.75 gigs available). The two programs themselves are using 700-900 Megs of memory when I get the error. I am pretty sure that 32-bit windows will not allow a single program to use more than 1 gig of memory. Can someone please correct or verify this information?
I THINK this is because of the memory allocation that I described above, but I'm not sure. (windows only allowing a program to use a maximum of 1 gig of memory) Does anyone know if there is a registry edit that can raise the memory cap? (Cap meaning windows allowing a single program to use no more than 1 gig of memory) IF it exists lol. The only other thing I can think of is to get a smaller GPU.
Here are screenshots of the error and process/performance tabs in task manager. As you can see the total memory used is 1.09 and Roamer.exe is using 700 megs of memory.
Task manager even says I have 1.6 gigs not being used. I should not be getting this error.
The program is roamer.exe in the process manager.
Thank you in advanced!
