Increasing the Memory Limit

Until V10 the limit of the amount of memory that could be used by BricsCAD was around 1.6 GB. In V11 or higher this limit has been increased to 4 GB on 64 bit systems and 3 GB on 32 bit systems. On 32 bit systems additional manual changes to the boot process are required.

On a 32 bit Windows Vista or Windows 7 system do the following:

  1. Click the Start button on the left hand side of the Windows task bar.
  2. Type command in the Windows Start Search field, then press Enter.

The Administrator Command Prompt window opens.

  1. Type bcdedit /set increaseuserva 3072 in the Administrator Command Prompt window, then press Enter.

The memory limit is increased to 3GB.

  1. Close the Administrator Command Prompt window.
