/LARGEADDRESSAWARE (Handle Large Addresses)

/LARGEADDRESSAWARE[:NO]

The /LARGEADDRESSAWARE option tells the linker that the application can handle addresses larger than 2 gigabytes. By default, /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.

  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.
