Live 9 on Windows 7 32-bit - NO more "memory problems"

Did you know this easy trick to make Live 9 32-bit a lot more stable under Windows 7 32-bit?

I allways got out of memory errors due to heavy usage of Kontakt 5 or Guitar Rig 5 plugins using big chunks of memory. After 3-5 tracks Live crashed - just telling me "not enough memory" what actually turned out to be initiated by hitting the 2GB adressing limit somehow. 

After reading too much technical stuff I experimented with rising the 2GB addressing limit using a simple admin command (you really need to switch into "run as administrator first") :

bcdedit /set increaseuserva 3072

Now the addressing limit is set to 3GB (which is max) and it works like a charm with a lot more tracks.

Wanted to share this...

Ciao, Bernd (
