Presumably you mean that you are using a 64-bit version of Windows 7. This is not sufficient to give you access to the full 8 GB of RAM.

My recollection is that Stata 10 for Windows was strictly a 32-bit program, so that it could not access anything beyond the 32-bit memory space. If there was a 64-bit version of Stata 10 you would have to use that rather than the 32-bit variant to get Stata to allocate more memory.

Actually, you are doing rather better than was usually the case for Stata 10 with a 32-bit operating system. This is probably because the operating system is loading system programs, etc in segments beyond the 32-bit boundary.

Dear Statalisters,

I have a 64-bit machine using windows 7 with 8GB of ram. I am using
Stata 10. The system only allows me to allocate 1.4GB of RAM to Stata.
Is there a way to get around this limitation?

Thanks for any suggestions,

Erasmo
