Note that this error happens only when running the examples in 32-bit
mode (arch i386) but not in 64-bit mode (arch x64). 32-bit Windows
doesn't allow a process to use more than 2 Gb of RAM. There is no such
limit with 64-bit Windows.
You have 2 options: (1) reduce the memory footprint of the examples,
or (2) give up on supporting your package for 32-bit Windows users.
(2) should be the last resort.
