Dear Timothy, please read below:

I uninstalled build 114 and reverted to build 113 who doesn't have the issue with .owl file assignment. Java still doesn't give me more than 954M no matter what I'd put in the Protégé.lax file. It's as if I were running a 32-bit Java, instead of the 64-bit version.

Yep, that does fix it, thank you!

At any rate, I assume that this is also a "P4.0.x in Windows7" issue, isn't it so? So it is not unreasonable to expect that it will be fixed, right?

Many thanks,
