    I run Cubase SX3 with the latest version of Kompakt and can get far over 2gb loaded with the 3gb switch in XP (32bit). I don't think Finale is large address aware or a 64bit application and consequently it cannot use over the 2gb set aside by any normal win32 application. However if you run Kontakt through V-Stack or the like you might be able to use over the 2gb. Incidentaly since Kontakt is not a 64bit application but is set to large address aware (I think) it would be interesting to see if you need any special switch to use over the 2gb in XP64.

    How do you find XP64 by the way?

    i think u might have to make finale "large memory aware," the way i do this for use with the 3 gb switch in my boot.ini....., you can use an old prog called imagecfg.exe (google it if u need), to 'flag' the finale exe file as large memory aware....it sounds kinda complex, but once you do it once, it can become routine. remember, you'll have to do this again whenever you update or re-install your version of finale....it needs to be done on the actual executable file....good luck, leafy.
