/LARGEADDRESSAWARE (Handle Large Addresses)

/LARGEADDRESSAWARE[:NO]

The /LARGEADDRESSAWARE option tells the linker that the application can handle addresses larger than 2 gigabytes. In the 64-bit compilers, this option is enabled by default. In the 32-bit compilers, /LARGEADDRESSAWARE:NO is enabled if /LARGEADDRESSAWARE is not otherwise specified on the linker line.

If an application was linked with /LARGEADDRESSAWARE, DUMPBIN /HEADERS will display information to that effect.

To set this linker option in the Visual Studio development environment

  1. Open the project's Property Pages dialog box. For details, see Setting Visual C++ Project Properties.

  2. Click the Linker folder.

  3. Click the System property page.

  4. Modify the Enable Large Addresses property.
