Installing Publisher 98

  Newuser12 22:00 29 Nov 2003

I have installed Publisher 98 (Windows 98 SE) and the program will not open - I get error "windows is low on memory, or your hard disk is full etc" I have plenty of available disk space and memory - any suggestions - I have installed this previously and it has run ok

Publisher is a big program, as you can probably judge by the time it takes to instal. I wonder if the amount of virtual memory may need increasing.

Your error message "could" be a red herring for some other problem,poss hardware driver conflict.Even though nothing shows until ms Publisher is installed.

Some searches will likely say that the problem is with the pub.exe file and if you uninstall Publisher and clean out remnants in registry all will be well after reinstall etc.If you do a search in the MS knowledge, the error message comes up for a fixes but again it can cover alot of areas.

I with same error, went into msconfig and after unticking all boxes then rebooting then adding a tick back into a msconfig box and rebooting eventually found that it was my canon printer driver/software, that was to blame.

You may be better,though it takes a while trying the same method first.Not saying you have a canon printer installed.
