RAM consumption under windows
I have written an application which needs a lot of RAM space (atleast 16MB) as there is a lot of I/0 and display features involved.
The program works fine in systems with 128MB of RAM but gives me a problem with lower memory systems.I used the norton utilities system doctor and found out that only 5 MB of Physical RAM is available when my system (32MB)starts.
Is there any way for me to clear the processes running by default on my system and put them temporarily on the swap file or maybe halt them until my program is running, the reason being that I can have more space for my program in the physical RAM.
Also please let me know some good resources for understandig the process and memory management under windows.
I use the core WIN32 API to program and if you could also tell me a few API's which will come to my help it will be great for me,
Thanks and regards
