I believe it is 2gb, since that's the usual Win32 kernel/userspace split; if
your process exceeds that size, how it fails will depend on how it's
written. Failure to allocate memory/heap space shouldn't cause a crash in a
well-written application, but not all applications are well-written.
In the case of Java VMs, for example, if you set the total max heap space
too large, it will typically just refuse to start.
