Re: Does Cygwin have a 2GB Memory/RAM limit ?

Have not had a chance yet.  But I think you are right.

I've referred you suggestion to our Windows Server team.

I also came across this which seems to confirm what you are saying and 
expand on it a bit.

I will re-test cygwin after enabling the larger memory support.

Thanks Gerrit.

I'm referring to the correct settings how to increase the default RAM
usage setting for applications running under Windows.

Have you actually tried what I told you?
