I'm on a 64 bit Windows Server 2008 machine with 24 Gb of RAM. For a 32 bit app I would like to use the /LARGEADDRESSAWARE linker option. For this, if I'm not mistaken (and please correct me if I am) I would have set (in the past) the /3GB switch in the boot.ini file.
In Windows Server 2008 boot.ini has been superseded by the BCD store and the related BCDEDIT tool. As far as I know, calling bcdedit without any option (or with /v for verbose display) should show the current settings. Under the Windows Boot Loader section I find the following entries:
- is my understanding correct? i.e. setting IncreaseUserVa meaningful in my use case?
- what is the current value of IncreaseUserVa ? Since its entry is not shown, is it set to the default?
- Assuming so, is the default value 2Gb ?
