[#VS2010] HowTo: Modify Visual Studio 2010 to really supports 64-bit (your choice and if it doesn’t work don’t complain)

Good,

as I am about to go on holiday and am not going to answer any email with questions or complaints in this regard, here I leave a command that enables Visual Studio 2010 so that you can use more than 2 GB of RAM on Windows Vista or Windows 7.

1. Open the command prompt in Visual Studio 2010. [Start / / All Programs / / Visual Studio 2010 / / Visual Studio Tools / / Visual Studio Command Prompt 2010]

2. Run the following command

EDITBIN.exe / LargeAddressAware “% Program Files%\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe”

3 Close the console

4 Launch Visual Studio 2010

Good, simple water. And if you have done so without even asking what the command “Editbin.exe /LargeAdressAware“… because you’re a bit criminal. The first thing you should have done is a BACKUP of DevEnv.exe > > guano Animal!

First of all the previous command (whose reference on msdn you can read here) allows an application to handle more than filesize of RAM in an environment x 86 or x 64, basically rewrites the COFF Assembly of the application to support this.

According to the type of compilation, the environment and the use of this flag, these are the parameters of memory that can handle an application (source)):

AnyCpu (default)
32 bit OS VAS = 2 GB (default)
32 bit OS LAA VAS = 3 GB
64 bit OS VAS = xTB (default)
x 86
32 bit OS VAS = 2 GB (default)
32 bit OS LAA VAS = 3 GB
64 bit OS VAS = 2 GB (default)
64 bit OS LAA VAS = 4 GB
x 64
64 bit OS VAS = xTB
LAA = LARGEADDRESSAWARE
x = 6 or 7 TB

As we can see the LAA option really does mean a major change in x 64 environments, but for 32-bit environments, as earnOnly 1 GB.

And this is useful for Visual Studio 2010? It may seem an exaggeration, in certain scenarios that extra RAM can mean the difference, especially if the IDE is responsible for creating really big assembled and the disc is fried in the compilation of those assembled.

Finally remember what I said at the beginning, this is not supported so no I send emails with your BSOD, or are agreed upon my holy mother.

Another couple of interesting links where they explain how to tune a little more to Visual Studio 20XX so it can work with more than 2 GB of RAM:
