      Please answer me these questions three, ere the other side you see:
      Are you running a 64-bit machine with a 64-bit Windows operating system? Can your AutoIt scripts cope with having directive #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=Y, and thus @AutoItX64=True? Are you sick and tired of seeing this error message?
      If you (like me) answered "YES" to all three questions, then the _HighMem library may ease your pain (the name commemorates a useful utility from the days when CPUs were still steam-powered). Forget about pathetic boot switches /3GB and /userva; in a full-fledged 64-bit environment, _HighMem can pre-allocate all available physical/virtual RAM you've got (or any smaller size you need), and manage individual allocations therein with four simple functions:
      _HighMem_StartUp( $nSize, $sUnit="GB" ) ; parse size of total region to pre-allocate, e.g. (10,"GB") _HighMem_Allocate( $nSize, $sUnit="B" ) ; returns $pOffset (new allocation's base address) _HighMem_Release( $pOffset ) ; existing allocations are identified by their offset (base address) _HighMem_CleanUp() ; close handles, release all pre-allocated memory Of course, existing AutoIt limitations remain in force (e.g., DllstructCreate() is still limited to 2 GB per call), but the maximum of 2-4 GB of virtual memory per Windows process can (under the right circumstances, in the proper environment) be circumvented. However, this is the first beta release, so glitches are likely, and performance may vary. In fact, it may not work at all for you (if you're running 32-bit, for example). And since this involves your own hardware, it's unlikely I would be able to reproduce your issues in my own work environment. Nevertheless, if you find obvious bugs or mistakes in the code, please do post. And if it works for you, that's also good to hear. My own motivation for developing it was to supercharge my matrix computing environment (Eigen4AutoIt), so it can handle matrices of any size that fit in machine RAM.
      The attached zip contains the library itself (HighMem.au3) and two test examples. HighMem_Test1 performs a dry run stress test of the allocation management system; it does not actually do any memory I/O. By contrast, HighMem_Test2 pre-allocates a 6 GB space, stores 3 x 2GB structs there, performs some basic I/O, and releases the allocations one by one. Obviously, for this to work you'll need at least that much free RAM to begin with (check with Task Manager -> Performance -> Memory if you're unsure). My own test environment has 16 GB of physical RAM, and runs W10Pro/64.
      EDIT: minor edits added to improve user experience (many more status messages if $_HighMem_Verbose=True)
      HighMem.v0.85.7z
      EDIT: from beta version 0.9, HighMem supports shared memory, including mutex negotiation.

      After watching this movie (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPiDHXtM0VA) I wanted to try the test to see how much i could compete with that chimpanzee so i created this script.
      well, actually passing that test is a lot harder than it sounds. With the difficulty set to seven numbers and a display time of one second, I can only remember 2 or 3 numbers ... (what a disappointment)
      I can only do better if I reduce the slider to 5 numbers and increase the storage time to 2 seconds (the easyest level), a very poor performance. That chimpanzee is great.
      The script offers you a sequence of 10 random quizzes. At the end it gives you the percentage of your "level". The chimpanzee resolves on average 8 out of 10 (80%), so you can compare your performance to that of the chimpanzee.
      How to play:
      Run the script. At the beginning there are 2 sliders at the bottom of the screen where you can set the difficulty level by varying the memorization time and the amount of numbers to memorize as you like. After setting the difficulty, click the circle on the bottom left to get started. after the first move the sliders are no longer displayed until the next game, (the game lasts 10 attempts, there is a progress bar at the bottom of the screen to see where you are) between one test and the other of the ten, click on the circle to move on to the next test have fun.

      When I use DllStructCreate() to reserve a chunk of memory I would like to know if I can rely on that memory being initialized to zero. Experience suggests that it is, but I have been searching to try and find a definitive statement anywhere that this is the case. I apologise if I have missed somewhere. Part of the reason for this question is so that my next search (after my personal memory has dimmed) should yield a link to this post, hopefully with an answer.
      A number of DLLs I use have structs where a few parts have to be explicitly set and other parts are reserved with the instruction that they must be set to zero. Because DllStructCreate() appears to zero-initialise the memory, I tend to forget to do it explicitly and everything seems to work. I am wondering whether I have been lucky and am storing up trouble for myself. It seems likely that the OS has been asked for zeroed memory, but without a promise in the documentation for DllStructCreate(),  perhaps that could change? Perhaps the developers wish to reserve the right to change their minds?

      Hi.
      The final question first: Is there a reason, that Autoit doesn't clean up RAM usage as a standard feature?
       
      This posting by @guinness was pointing me to the solution for solving my problem:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/131315-accumulating-memory-usage/?do=findComment&comment=914208
      DllCall("psapi.dll", "int", "EmptyWorkingSet", "long", -1) this simple, single line called on a regular basis stopped the script consuming more and more RAM.
      CU, Rudi.

      Guys, i need help on creating a script that restarts a program once it starts using more than 1GB of memory.
      No idea how to start on the script, i don't know which functions i should use for process memory reading.
       
      My mind is in total blank at the moment, so i need a kick start
