Well, it can't be good for Stata memory allocation, as
XP has always been stingy about giving Stata more than 1gb...

XP mode is pretty good, actually, at running legacy apps, and also exchanges
files with its host OS very fast and reliably. Stata 10 probably runs on
Windows 7 itself, though...

Just a possibility. 64bit Win 7 *should* give 32bit Stata
as much as 3.2gb, but XP was not good about this, perhaps
Win 7 also. There's something called "XP mode" in Win 7,
I haven't used it, but it can't be good....

With the result being that the old limitations of 32-bit bite, although
64-bit OSes can generally access more memory?
http://www.stata.com/products/64bitintro.html certainly stresses that
"64-bit Stata requires both a 64-bit computing platform and a 64-bit
operating system." Any missing link in this chain can probably spoil your
fun!

Are you running 64bit Stata? If 32bit, Win 7 may be running
it as an XP app.

I just purchased a new laptop with 8 gb of memory, running on 64 bit
Windows 7.  I am trying to use a  just-under 3 gb dataset with Stata
10.1/SE.  I try

set mem 3g

But stata says “op. sys. refuses to provide memory,” and it will only
let me go up to about 1400m.  Is it possible for me to use this data
on my laptop (besides having to find a way to make it smaller)?  Can I
increase the memory Stata uses?

Thanks,
JT
