With 16GB of DDR4 in system. The one in "System Specs" of my profile.
Trying to run this with 14+GB of ram for testing purposes, but program reports can't lock memory for testing as it complaines OS or an app is using it.
I only have the OS running with nothing else, it's not even updating OS... etc..
Have to cut it down to 9216MB, & only then can the testing run.

Wondering if this is a bug or not?

This is an issue with MemTest64, no issue with your computer.

It seems to have to do with how I allocate memory, and how Windows like the memory to be allocated, but I haven't found a definitive work around yet.

Thanks, I'm running it again today but with 10240MB this time, it seems happy with that atm.
