I would like to look up my current value of "IncreaseUserVA".

There is this windows setting "BCDEDIT /set IncreaseUserVa 3000" which allows me to change a memory splitting. Well, before I want to override this setting, where can it be found or where is it stored?

Run BCDEdit from a command prompt to display the current boot config. This also includes the IncreaseUserVa setting.

Well it is not included. Not yet. I guess I have to set it first, so this is the point. What is it NOW? Before I set it. – Peter Dec 10 '12 at 20:12
if you haven't set anything, it doesn't show and the default value of 2GB applies. – magicandre1981 Dec 10 '12 at 20:56
How could you know it is 2GB? Where to find this value. I mean, yes everybody says it is 2GB. But just because someone said it before. I want to find out where it is set, where it can be found before I set it. – Peter Dec 11 '12 at 6:21
how I know this? because this is the how the Windows Memory Management for 32Bit applications works. read the Windows Internals Book 6 (part 2- Ch 10 page 229), it explains the x86 Address space layout. – magicandre1981 Dec 11 '12 at 13:35
