/3GB really only lets apps use up to 3GB of memory though.

Oh, I thought I was a way to tell Windows to cross the default 3GB limit and because it's 32bit it could/would handle 4GB max?

The image is still rendering. But the image is still rendering! No error messages.  8)

So this little tweak does work. It has the added benefit of causing Windows Vista to boot longer (it had to re configure itself after expanding to fill as much memory as possible, after I went to 4 GB).

Thanks Kadri for the tip! :)

It just gave me a new error. I was not able to capture it, but it was something about an error occurring in the rendermore pass. The image was the one with Walli's astibles. This has two 5 million plus populations of flowers and millions of grass objects. It could be I just ran out of memory. I'll save this for the eventual new computer...

It just changes the size that 'large address aware flagged' programs can access memory. 32 bit machines can only address 4 GB of ram. The address space my Dell 510 can address is about 3.25 GB, even with the 4 GB of ram installed.
The image I was using to test with has extreme population numbers. It may not render with 64 bit OS and 12 GB.

Sad ...

I bought Windows 7  64  last week . So far i like it . It is definitely better then Vista 64 for me .

I am curious if your scene would render on it or if you have to wait for TG2 64  ?

Kadri.

It will be a while (months) before I can test this, new computer...
