I suppose you are using win XP 64 bits, as well as APP 64 bits ?

Don't I wish!

WinXP 32bits. APP 32bits.

Lots of RAM (for a 32 bit system). Lots of disk. Not much processor. :(

Hum. On the 32 bits version, we limit the possible use of APP to 2 gigas. You cannot access more than that from a single application in fact.
So really reduce the cache size to 100 MB at most. Not more. If you have 8 or 16 cores, put 2 or 4, but not more even if you have them. Cores are also using a lot memory.

That raises a question: What exactly is the cache you can set in APP/APG used for? It does not seem to be the maximum amount of RAM used by APP. What happens (benefit/disadwantage) if you set the cache higher?

I think didn't understand the handling of the cache.

I don't think any user really understand the Cache setting, as it has not been thoroughly explained. What I know is that is it used only during rendering, but don't know in which part of it and does it apply if you use Smartblend...

Reducing the memory worked. Is it just me, or does anyone else remember the cache setting being less than 256K?
