@Tihiy: Supposedly, you can also go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop/ and create the string value USERMaxHeapSize there, to control the max 32-bit USER heap size. While USERMaxHeapSize indeed exists inside USER.EXE, what I always found strange is: (i) why the control for USER is inside the registry, while the one for GDI is at WIN.INI?; (ii) why is it a string and not a DWORD or binary value? (iii) why WIN.INI instead of SYSTEM.INI?
It occurs to me that they may be alternative places, and that using both in the indicated place at the resgistry or both in WIN.INI would work the same, but, if so, why? Moreover, why, before you mentioned it, I'd only found these settings in french sites, which apparently cite one another (this one
, for instance)? I know, I know... that's too many questions!
But I just wasn't able to resist posing you them since you wrote about GDIMaxHeapSize.
And, yes, yes, yes! You can count on me too to alpha/beta test, whenever you want it.
@Drugwash: Have you given Miranda up?
I see you've purged it from your sinature too! What happened?
