/LARGEADDRESSAWARE (Handle Large Addresses)
The /LARGEADDRESSAWARE option tells the linker that the application can handle addresses larger than 2 gigabytes. In the 64-bit compilers, this option is enabled by default. In the 32-bit compilers, /LARGEADDRESSAWARE:NO is enabled if /LARGEADDRESSAWARE is not otherwise specified on the linker line.
If an application was linked with /LARGEADDRESSAWARE, DUMPBIN /HEADERS will display information to that effect.
To set this linker option in the Visual Studio development environment
Open the project's Property Pages dialog box. For details, see Set C++ compiler and build properties in Visual Studio.
Select the Configuration Properties > Linker > System property page.
Modify the Enable Large Addresses property.
