To enable the 3GB switch on Windows Vista™ or Windows 7:

1 . Right-click Command Prompt in the Accessories program group of the Start menu. Click Run as Administrator.
2. At the command prompt, enter "bcdedit /set increaseuserva 3072"
3. Restart the computer.
Yeah, add me to the list of people that this has worked for (Win 7 32bit system on a wifi network). In about 5 hours of play this evening, not one ctd. Before using this, one ctd within the first 1.5-2 hours, then one every hour after that.

Thank God for the community, cause the devs seem to be spitting into the wind. Unbelievable.

EDIT: To reiterate a previous statement, I don't consider this a "fix" for BW's problem, but it's as close to one as possible until a fix is issued. Many users don't peruse the forums to come across work-arounds like this, so it still needs to be fixed for them. Meanwhile, the end-users just owned BW in my book.
Kick in the door, wave in the fo fo. All you heard was "Pappa, don't force push me no mo!"
