Hi, and thanks for your attention and hopefully your help in solving this problem. I Love Adobe's Photodeluxe 2.0. It is a simple to use photo editor, and whenever I edit photo's, I use it first before any other program. I tried to launch it yesterday and it comes up with a gray window that says: There is not enough memory (RAM) tp launch PhotoDeluxe.
Well, my computer runs a celeron 2.8 GHZ and I have 1.5 GBS of Ram. I run a memory manager and I have over 900 meg of Ram available. THis is not due to lack of memory, but that is the error the program is reporting. I know that this program is probably 5 years or older, but I would really appreciate it if someone could help me troubleshoot it and find the problem.
I recently changed anti-virus/spyware software to Norton, which is provided by my DSL Provider. So I tried safe mode and got the same message when I tried to lanch it there. I believe Windows did an update just in the last 2 or 3 days, and I wonder if that could have caused this. Thanks for your help. John

I did a google search which lead me to information that points to that program having a problem with too much RAM. Yeah...go figure. It seems that the work around is to max out your virtual memory, I ran across two different site that had success with the same method.

Start> Control Panel> System. Click on the Advanced tab, under Performance click on Settings. Under the Performance Options click on the Advanced tab, under Virtual Memory click on Change.

Please let us know if this works.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
