And the application vendor is?!? Really like to know who to avoid next time....

Contact MicroSoft as to find out how to
use 4GB memory on a 32-bit machine.

Then ask the same MS experts how 10GB of paging file can ever be used by this very same 32-bit thing.

Hints: nope, not.

What are the problems, and why do you think these are memory related?
