I'm not sure how much this will help, but have you tried using the /3GB switch in boot.ini? According to MS, this switch will give applications up to 3GB of memory instead of the usual 2GB limit, but the application must be set up to take advatage of this (using a flag in the file header) and I'm not sure if Stata has this setting.

Hi Statalist,

I know this is a v often asked question but I have looked around a bit and
already installed the patch (Microsoft hotfix 8944472), I wonder if there
are other things I can do.

I'm on a Windows XP with 3GB of memory using STATA 9, calling up the STATA
program from a network drive. Before I install the patch I could only
increase my memory up to 800m, after I have installed the patch I can
increase to 1400m but still fall v far short from the 3GB that's on my
computer. I have tried the fix that should only apply to users of
Windows95/98/NT and alter the system.ini file and still it wouldn't allow me
to set mem more than 1400m. Any thoughts?

All comments welcome. Thanks a lot in advance!
