8.2 under Windows XP. Recently I paid for much memory to try to have
more memory available in Stata. Actually I have 3.7 Gigabytes of
memory. When I click "About" in Stata, it says "Total Physical Memory
2097151 KB Available Physical Memory 2097151 KB". (In Control Panel it
says correctly that I have 3.71 GB RAM).
    When I do even "set mem 900m" in Stata, it tells me "op.sys
refuses to provide memory; r(909)". The maximum that I can achieve is
874m. I know that Windows is trying to obtain the largest contiguous
area of memory. I have read the good article 'How do I load large
datasets (>1Gb) under Windows?' by Kevin S. Turner from Oct. 2001, but
frankly it does not help a Windows user very much.
    Is there a way to solve this problem?
    Many thanks for your help,
      Javi Garcia
