    I have a weird problem with SORT

    When I execute the sort command

    sort.exe "Infile.txt" /O "Outfile.txt"
    or
    sort.exe "Infile.txt" >"Outfile.txt"

    I get the error "Not enough main memory to complete the sort"

    The target location of Outfile.txt doesn't matter
    The size of Infile.txt doesn't matter

    However when I execute the sort command
    sort.exe "Infile.txt"
    the sorted result is shown on screen and is without any error

    So there seems to be no memory problem!

    But what's going on ?

    PS: I tried the "/M nnn" option but this doesn't change anything
