Hi all,

I have a MS Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit and a Intel Core2Duo CPU P7550, 4.0GB RAM.

I would like to load a large dataset (almost 2GB), but I could not increase memory. I tried to put more than 1.5 GB, but operational system refused to provide memory. I've read about this and it seems that windows does not allocate more than 2 GB on 32-bits applications. Also I've enabled virtual memory, which seems to be set on by defaut in Stata 11. Unfortunately, it didn't work.

I have a question: if I use a Stata MP 64 bits it would be possible to load this kind of dataset?

Kind regards,

Raquel
