What do you really need? ExitProcess worked even for computers from 90’s when 256 MB of RAM were considered a lot.

If you in fact want to get the amount of physical memory available in your system you might give a try to GlobalMemoryStatus[Ex] function, for example.

Exiting a process has no restrictions related to RAM size. Call it whenever you want.

I think ExitProcess requires at least 4bytes of ram.

But we can save a few bytes by replacing Windows with MS-DOS Smile
