2GB static limit

2GB static limit

Our company has finally reached the 2GB limit on statically allocated memory under windows (NT/2000/etc). I understand that this is windows and not visual fortran - aside from rewriting code using allocatable arrays, what is the solution? Does anyone know if microsoft is considering a patch? Wait for 64bit windows?

thanks much

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

A "good news" is that even rewriting to allocatable arrays won't help -- 2GB is Windows' hard limit. There is only a special server version (2000 Enterprise Server IIRC) which provides 3GB user virtual memory.


Actually Windows XP Pro and .NET Server 2003 support /3Gb as well.
