Load image using large pages if possible

The Load image using large pages if possible setting directs the system to use large pages (4 MB) rather than the standard small pages (4 KB) when mapping binaries into the process address space.

This setting is most helpful for large executable files, because it significantly reduces the number of page table entries in physical memory.



Hexadecimal value


Symbolic Name


Image file registry entry



This setting is not technically a global flag, because its value is stored in a separate registry entry, not as a value of the GlobalFlag registry entry. As a result, you cannot set it by using a hexadecimal value, and when you select this setting for an image file, it appears in the Other settings field of the display.
