Memory Allocation - Nastran can't find it all.

N/A

My PC has 3Gb of ram as indicated by the XP system properties,
The NX Nastran .log file states there is only 2047Mb of physical memory available.
Can I force the amount of available memory in the .RCF file, or is there a 2Gb limit
for NX Nastran on XP ?

Hi!
I think the problem is that Win32 only can allocate 2Gb per process without the
/3GB switch. Maybe setting that switch will help. I haven't tried it myself but
I will.
Here's the link how to do it:
