vista EATS RAM (500MB, nice light snack! 1 or 2 gigs, eats a good chunk but you should be able to work with non ram intensive applications) open the program then open task manager (ctrl, alt, delete, click on task manager) and check to see if memory is fully in use, if it is check to make sure that swap or page file is not fully in use.
I found this solution on another forum and it worked for me. I have Adobe Photodeluxe 4 on a vista OS and got the same RAM error. I tried the "change the virtual memory" fix and that did not work. Then I found this: Right click on the Adobe Photodeluxe icon on the desktop and choose Properties, click on the Compatibility tab and choose run this progam in Windows XP service pack 2 mode. It worked for me!
I just got Photo deluxe 2.0 to work on a new computer
(bought Feb. 2010) with Windows 7, and I don’t even have a .setup file. This
was a program that came with an HP years ago when they included a lot of
software. I had simply dragged and dropped the program onto a CD. Since then I loaded
and ran it on my XP without problem. Now
with Windows 7 I got the ‘not enough RAM’ message and tried everything
suggested on several blogs without luck. To fix the problem I right clicked on
the .exe file and selected ‘properties’. Went to ‘compatibility’ then checked ‘run
this program in compatibility mode for:’ and selected, ‘windows 98 / windows me’.
Boy was I happy to see it up and running again. Hope this helps someone out
there, this is a great program. I’ve used the newer versions and they are WAY
too complicated for my usage.
Go into the PhotoDeluxe2.0 CD ROM file list, right click on setup.exe and then go to the compatability tab. Select Win 98/ME. Hit OK. Then double-click on setup.exe. Program should install on Vista. Then find setup.exe on your hard drive, and set the compatability to Windows 98/ME. Program runs, but says something about not being able to load 16-bit driver. Just cancel out of that popup window. Program works fine...for me...so far.
