Old Game Receives Virtual Memory Error


M

Mijos

Help Please . . .

I have successfully installed and run several of the Carmen
SanDiego educational games for my grandchildren. So far, four of five work
great. For some reason, when I try to run Carmen SanDiego Math Detective,
it always fails with the message: "Director Player 6.0 - This program
requires at least 3 MB of free virtual memory to run."

I installed the software in compatibility mode for win 98, with 640x480 and
256 color.

I have modified virtual memory per recommendations outlined in a prior
solution in newsgroups. Current status is below.

I have also uninstalled and reinstalled per the manufacturers instructions.

So far, no luck.

What do you recommend that I try next?


PC Config: AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3200+
1.80 GHz, 960 MB RAM

System: MS Windows XP Pro, Version 2002, SP2

HD Capacity: 74.5 GB
63.9 GB Free

Virtual Memory:

Total paging file size for all drives: 1437 MB

Space available: 66904 MB
currently set for System managed size

Total paging file size for all drives : (C: only)
Minimum allowed: 2 MB
Recommended: 1437 MB
Currently allocated: 1437 MB

Thanks in advance . . .

In system properties,virtual memory,C: drive is set at "let system manage"
if not set at that,click set 2X close out.Otherwise,youre video card memory
amount might be minimul (too small) & ram memory also at min,replace
video card with better one &/or add more ram memory,&/or install a 2nd hd,
format the hd,in system properties,virtual-memory,also set to "let system
manage" this gets you more memory + added storage...

Is this advice supposed to be taken seriously?!

Mijos - Take a look at the Amazon page linked to below. The advice on this
page may well apply to your situation as well.

Ed - I don't understand what your are referring to. The Amazon page linked
to below? where? Are you referring to a specific news item below? How far
below?

That did the trick! Thank you so much. Amazing to find the solution in the
comments for an Amazon item description. I spent far too many hours chasing
this down today. Needless to say, I'm sure I'll be back. Thanks again
