/LARGEADDRESSAWARE (Handle Large Addresses)

 

The latest version of this topic can be found at -LARGEADDRESSAWARE (Handle Large Addresses).

LARGEADDRESSAWARE[:NO]

  
## Remarks  
 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](../Topic/-HEADERS.md) will display information to that effect.
