Arma 3 crashing, reporting "out of memory, requested 4096kb"
New, NormalPublic

Description

Just purchased Arma 3 yesterday, when on prologue loading screen the game has consistently crashed, with error "out of memory, requested 4096kb". I have 16 GIG RAM and plenty of hard drive space. Windows 10 32 bit OS. Also I'm getting exit codes "STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION" and another one status "DEAD"
I lowered graphics settings, and still game crashes with error "out of memory, requested 0kb" or some kb variation. Not sure what issue is. I have attached a report under "additional information".

Something worth noting, if you're using a 32bit OS, I'm assuming you're also using a 32bit version of Arma 3. No 32bit executable can actually use 16GB of RAM.

Perhaps I should upgrade my OS to 64 bit. I was under the impression that Arma 3 can run with a 32 bit version. Im just not sure why it keeps crashing with the memory issue.
