Presuming this is 32Bit Vista and crashing every one to two hours

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 2500"
3.Restart the computer.

To delete the value if needed
1.Right-click on Command Prompt in the Accessories program group of the Start menu. Click Run as Administrator.
2.At the command prompt, enter "bcdedit /deletevalue IncreaseUserVa"
3.Restart the computer.

Will either stop it or slow it down, the means to remove the key are listed as well if you find it doesn't help.

If it is 32bit Vista then you need to use the following switches. /3GB /USERVA
These switches increases the amount of VM usable by an application from the default of 2GB to 3GB. It also decreases the amount of VM available to Windows from 2GB to 1GB.

Note, VM is NOT the page file. It is RAM that also includes the page file. Using the switches above might mean there is more use of the page file as there are more hard faults (meaning the item isn't in the memory and needs to get it form the page file into the RAM).

The crashes to desktop can be caused by a myriad of things. SWTOR is a 32bit application, if it needs more than 2GB of RAM it can use it, but it means data, considered old will be page out to file and will be there until required. Increasing the RAM available to application does mean windows might be starved of memory, and Vista this might be a case as well.

Try those switches, but my doubt is, it might not always fix it.

Hi Mike, the command I gave should work for vista, link below says it does ?
/3Gb is XP only as far as I am aware
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=vs.85).aspx

setting 2500 is a good tradeoff and is sufficient I think for swtor.

I have private messeges from Vista 32 bit users saying it works great, i just dont feel right posting a PM to the forums though

This is normal swtor uses 2 processes, which is why you see 2 displayed in task manager.
