This is a bug in XP SP2 that didn't affect Stata 8 but does affect Stata 9 because Stata 9 switched to the MFC libraries. It is a Stata faq:

Unfortunately, I have recently started using my Stata 9 and I tried to get the hot fix mentioned in the faq and MS told me that it was pulled. So, as of now, I need to use Stata 8.2 for large datasets. In fact, I find myself mostly using 8.2 because of this bug and I would to know if any other potential fixes are lurking out there.

Subject: st: stata9 vs stata8 memory issues


I have recently made the switch toStata9. Today I updated and tried to
replicate some earlier work. Stata9 will only allocate 935m of memory
but without rebooting Stata8.2 will allocate 1425m. Has anyone run
into this issue, does anyone have any suggestions?

I have 1.5 gigs of ram on a WinXP (service pack 2) machine.
