I try to increase memory size (by copy-pasting from FAQ) --max-mem-size=1Gb at
the end of the Target field (after any final double quote, and separated by a
space) and changing the 1 to a 4. 

After double-clicking the shortcut (for modified 2.4.1 OR 2.6.1 OR 2.6.2) I get
 --max-mem-size=4G: too large and ignored.

I have Vista business64 with 8 Gb of RAM. BioC2.1 and 2.2 complain about a lack
of memory.

Suggestions welcome but I think I am "alone" so far.
