I am trying to migrate a Fortran program from Unix to Windows XP Professional using Compaq Visual Fortran 6.6a. The program compiles error free, but encounters a warning LNK4084: total image size -1042087936 exceeds max (268435456); image may not run. And sure enough it doesn't run. The help on LNK4084 says programs over 256-MB can't be run.
Commercial applications, such as PTC ProE, are now successfully addressing up to 3-GB of memory space using the Windows XP Professional server memory model address. My question is will Compaq Visual Fortran support the Windows XP Professional memory model in the near future so we can run larger Fortran programs?
