Virtual Memory Problem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Okay, I need some help here. I have vista ultimate 64bit and I don't know if that is part of this problem, but I'm hoping someone here can help me. I use Adobe's CS3 programs and I've been getting the "Application is out of virtual memory" error. Now, I have some decent size files and such, but here is the weird part where I know something isn't configured right. I'll be looking at my task manager and only 2.83gb is being use....I have 8gb, how am I out of memory? I haven't messed with the virtual memory settings, but maybe I need to?

So help would be much appreciated. PC specs are below in my sig.

What do you have your virtual memory set to? It should be about 1.5x the amount of installed, I would just set it to the value vista recomends which will probably be approx 1.5x.

Goto control your panel > system > advanced system setings > performance settings > advanced and see that your virtual memory settings are as they should be.

Also in CS3 check that you have a good amount of scratch disk space as this acts as virtual memory too. You can check the amount in CS3 by clicking on Edit > Preferences > Performance. A general amount is 50% of system ram which in your case would be about 4GB if CS3 sees it all properly.

Thanks for the response! Photoshop is set at 55% which is probably why I don't have probs there even with massive photos. My problem usually happens in InDesign when exporting a file. I don't see the memory settings for performance in InDesign though...

My virtual memory is currently "checked" for "automatically manage paging file size for all drives", should I take that off and manually set it? Recommended is 12283mb and I currently have 8489 allocated, but I didn't know if those numbers are even being used if it's automatically managing the paging file size?

manually set it; also, try to put it on another physical HDD than your sys files. Make the Min and the maximum the same! Try 3500MB min/max.... Otherwise, the size is dynamic and the read/write speeds are slower.

Just like R3ap3R says... Set the PF manually and If you can put it on another drive, preferably one that doesn't contain the operating system files.

I have 4GB and my VM is set to 5000MB and that's only because Vista 32bit doesn't see it all, If it did I would have it set to 6000MB (1.5x available ram) So your VM windows recommended amount should show somewhere around 8000MB?
