One of my developers came to me asking me to add more RAM to the c++ build server. However the machine was already at 2 Gigs so I wasn’t sure if adding more RAM wouldn’t help. Turns out that VS 2005 doesn’t support AWE so adding more RAM wasn’t going to be of much help. Until I found a post by Steve Harman entitled Hacking Visual Studio to Use More Than 2Gigabytes of Memory.
After making those changes it seamed to work.
