number of kinetic minerals in GWB


Recommended Posts


We’re looking into this issue. There may be a limitation to the GUI imposed by Windows, but the calculation engine itself can handle any number of reactants. In the meantime, if you run X2t by entering commands into Gwb.exe (go to the support pane of the GWB dashboard), you shouldn’t experience the problem.

Hi Johan,

We’ve looked into your problem. Unfortunately, there are some limitations imposed by the Windows OS. As I mentioned, you can bypass the GUI using Gwb.exe to include any number of reactants. Alternatively, you can try editing your registry to allow more user objects. The default Windows allows is 10000, but you can increase it to 18000. There’s still ultimately a limit, but you may be able to add almost twice as many reactants. The specific registry entry is: 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\USERProcessHandleQuota 

To edit your registry, type regedit into your Seach bar, then click to Run. Navigate from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE down to the various subfolders until you get to Windows, then right-click on USERProcessHandleQuota and select Modify. With the “Base” set to Decimal, enter 18000 for the “Value data:”, then hit OK. You’ll need to reboot your computer. After this, please try working with your script again. You should be able to add some more reactants. There will still ultimately be a limit, though.

We’re exploring options to make this work better in future releases. Please let us know if you have any more questions.
