virtual memory

I have tried to run a couple of games, but I get an error message stating I need at least 3mb of VIRTUAL MEMORY.
These are new games, and my other games already installed are OK!
?
How can I correct this?

I must confess, I have never had this error message before.
Thanks for your amazingly fast response. Got to get it working or I will be in trouble with my grandsons!

how much RAM is there?

They don't look like very demanding games. Try uninstall and then re install them.

I got this error once after i moved my virtual mem off my c: drive and onto its own partion on another disk. setting up a new one back on the c: seemed to solve it

The problem is caused by the fact that the games are really old (as first published) and cannot cope with large amounts of RAM memory.

This is the suggestion from GSP(publisher of the Winnie the Pooh game) click here

Hope that helps.

ST Atlantis,Thalmus and gudgulf.
Many thanks - lots to try. However, the response from gudgulf was fine and Winnie works!
Perhaps PINGU will work when I reinstal it!
