Hello all,

since Bioware is unable to fix their CTD/Memory Leak Bugs, try this workaround (on Windows7 only though):

RUN
regedit
go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]

and change the (in original it's 10000):
"GDIProcessHandleQuota"=dword:00004e20
(decimal value is 20000)

It seems that SWTOR since Patch 1.4 got problems with the memory, highly caused by increasing GDI-objects while specially mouse commands, when you hover over buttons, enter movies etc.

The increase handle value of GDI to 20000 just makes the time longer before you crash, but at least you can play for a good while.

If you do a lot of multitasking you may need to adjust this setting but if you are not getting a "system resources running low" warning then I seriously doubt this will do anything.

There is a big difference in limits between 32 bit and 64 bit OS

I personally have Win 7 64bit 16Gb Ram and 670GTX - No crashes.
