You receive error 1450 "ERROR_NO_SYSTEM_RESOURCES" when you try to create a very large file in Windows XP

Support for Windows XP has ended

Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. This change has affected your software updates and security options. Learn what this means for you and how to stay protected.

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario. You try to create a very large file in Microsoft Windows XP by moving the file pointer to the end of a file. Then you call the SetEndOfFile function. In this scenario, the SetEndOfFile function fails with error 1450 "ERROR_NO_SYSTEM_RESOURCES".
CAUSE
This problem occurs because the cache manager cannot allocate any more memory for the file caching.
WORKAROUND
To work around this problem, open the file by using the FILE_FLAG_NO_BUFFERING flag. Then try to call the SetEndOfFile function until the SetEndOfFile function succeeds.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
