I have 4 gigabytes of RAM and 4 additional gigabytes defined as virtual memory. Yet when my processes reach 2 gigabytes of "Mem Usage" in the Windows Task Manager, they give memory errors and die. Why should this happen? Is there a Windows parameter that I could change to allow more than 2 gb of RAM to be used or to allow virtual memory to be used? I'm using Windows XP Pro with all updates in place on a Pentium 4 2.8. I'm working on animations with several different programs, but their experts can't seem to help.
