4gb-patch

Hello:

How one uses the "LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE" flag with FS9.exe depends on whether ones Windows OS is a 32-bit or 64-bit version. :alert:

FS9 will work in either 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows, and is compatible with Windows versions from Windows 98 through Windows 10.

IIRC, a 32-bit program such as FS9.exe can be run in 64-bit Windows on a computer with at least 5 or more GB of physical system RAM modules reportedly can be allocated up to a full 4GB of User Virtual Address Space (aka "USERVAS") for that FS task session after FS9.exe has had the "LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE" flag applied using the above cited 4GB Patch from NTCore.

Users of 32-bit Windows can can be allocated up to 2.65 GB of User Virtual Address Space (aka "USERVAS") for that FS9 task session after FS9.exe has had the "LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE" flag applied using the above cited 4GB Patch from NTCore, and when the "/3GB switch" and "USERVA" of 2560MB is also configured in the Boot.ini file for Windows XP.:alert:

Note that in 32-bit Windows Windows versions since Vista and later, "the boot.ini file has been replaced with Boot Configuration Data (BCD). This file is more versatile than boot.ini, and it can apply to computer platforms that use means other than basic input/output system (BIOS) to start the computer."

Hope this helps ! :)
