Erasmo Giambona ( has a 64-bit machine with 8 GB
of RAM, but is only able to get 1.4 GB of RAM for Stata 10:

Stata 12 and Stata 11 have platform-independent licenses, so when you
get a Stata license it works on Windows, Mac, Linux, etc. and on 32-bit
and 64-bit varieties.

Stata 10, however, had platform-specific licenses, so when users bought
a license they needed to specify exactly what platform (including 32-bit
vs. 64-bit) it was for.

Given what Erasmo described, the copy of Stata 10 must be a version for
32-bit Windows.  That will run on 64-bit Windows, but can't allocate
all the memory on Erasmo's system.

Erasmo should contact with the Stata serial number
(type -about- in Stata to see the license information), and they will
be happy to help convert the license to a 64-bit license.  Erasmo will
need to uninstall the current 32-bit version of Stata 10, install the
64-bit version of Stata 10 in its place, and put in new 64-bit license
