Manage memory for specific app

I wondering if it is possible to set a max amount of memory that an application is permited to use in Windows 7? For example, if unrar is running I want it to use no more then 4 of the total 6 available gigs of memory.

Windows 10 Pro (x64) cannot do that.

I am pretty sure that it can't be done. But, if there were a way, it would certainly affect the performacne of the application.
