Attention when installing hot fix MS06-040 (KB921883)


it installs a new netapi32.dll which badly fragments the virtual address space of a 32 Bit process preventing 2 GB applications (java.exe is one of them) to allocate more than 850 MB contigious memory.

3 GB enabled 32 bit applications may also be affected by this.

64 bit applications are not affected.

32 bit applications on 64 bit operating systems are affected.

there are two solutions :

1. uninstall KB921883

2. install KB924054
