    Well let me just get to the point, I am using a software to build cloudpoints for 3d Printing (that does not really matter). When I compile everything I got and wait for it to compile (15 mins) it then hits me with an error that says "Error: Out of memory". Now I am on a 64 bit OS and I have plenty of hard drive space left AND I do have 32 GB of Ram, and When I do check the task manager how much does this process use from my hardware, it uses like 0.5 gb of ram and none of my hardware really goes above 20% usage, yet it still gives me the error.

    Sounds like an issue with the software you are using. Unfortunately you didn't mention it's name or version.

    Well the software is called 3Dcrystal, Its made privately it is not an open software. And I do know what the exact issue is, I just need to know how to "allocate" more ram to a 32 bit software. That is the exact issue I am facing, I just need more ram for the software to use. I tried searching online but can not find anything regarding allocating more ram for the 32 bit software to use. I do have 32 GBs of ram fyi.

    A 32-bit application, or process, should be able to use up to 2GB of RAM, you are saying it's only using 0.5GB so it's not hitting an OS RAM limitation but likely an internal one.

    You can try this program I just Googled as it claims to increasr the limit to 4GB but you need to backup the orginal program file: https://www.maketecheasier.com/increase-memory-limit-for-32-bit-applications-in-windows-64-bit-os/

    But your best course of action to is to contact the developer of the software to obtain a fixed version of the program that doesn't have a memory issue, or to get a 64-bit version.
