Setting up Visual Studio 2005 to use more than 2 Gigs of RAM

Denny Cherry Denny Cherry Profile: Denny Cherry


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.
