"program needs minimum 3MB virtual memory to run"?

  TomJerry 01:06 19 Apr 2005

Since I increased the memory from 512MB to 1GB memroy, my kid's program (DK learning Ladder) does not run anymore.

The error message says "Program needs minimum 3MB virtual to run"? I tried many different virtual memory (pagefile) setting. No luck.

WinXP Pro sp2.

Any help?

Well you should have more than 3Mb virtual memory any way with a GIG of ram installed,if windows is setting the pagefile for you that is.Does it mean the High memory? but this is usually for DOS based games not windows ones so i shouldnt think it means that.

Try right clicking on the shortcut or the exe and try it in compatability mode

some googles found this is a known problem for many older games with XP and over 1GB RAM

solve the problem by tweaking with virtual memory seeting

system manage virtual memeory: does not work

no virtual memeory: works

minimum size 256Mb: works

minimum size too big: does not work
