Extending your memory in Avid Express/Composer

The Microsoft Windows XP operating system limits every program to 2 gigabytes
(GB) of address space. It reserves the remaining 2 gigabytes of address space for its
own use. Avid provides a utility for setting the boot-time mechanism to extend the process
address space. Setting your Avid editing system to access a larger virtual address space might
improve working with HD projects without running out of memory.
Use the following procedure to extend your usable address space.

1. Double-click Program Files\Avid\Utilities\3GB\Install3G.bat.
The following window opens.
Avid%20Express%20Composer%20Extended%20memory.gif

2. Choose one of the following:
If you want to always use the extended memory every time you boot
the system, type D.
If you want the option to choose between the extended memory and the
original default setting whenever you reboot, type M.

3. Restart your system.

This should help with memory allocation and keep you from recieving the memory errors.
