Error: Director Player requires 3MB of free virtual memory to run (TTID #303)

Author: TACKtech Team   Views: 201,512 /  Created: January 1, 2004
This application requires at least 3MB of free virtual memory to run.

The error is caused by conflicts between Microsoft Windows XP and 2000 (With 1GB or more memory) and the version of Macromedia Director used to create some programs, Auto-run menus, and installers.

Note: Overall system performance may be hampered by these settings. Setting the virtual memory to a lesser value is a workaround to get some applications to run. For best performance Microsoft recommends, not to set the initial size to less than the minimum recommended size under Total paging file size for all drives. (The recommended size is equivalent to 1.5 times the amount of RAM on your system.)

Right click on My Computer.
Left click on Properties.

Click on the Advanced tab.
Under Performance, click the Settings button.

Click on the Advanced tab.
Under Virtual memory, click the Change button.

Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.

Under Paging file size for selected drive, select the Custom size option.

Type 384 in the Initial size (MB) text box.

Click the Set button.

Click the OK button.

Close remain dialogs.

You may need to restart your system.
