Problem with Adobe PhotoDeluxe
I have just installed a new Hard drive and am re-installing favorite programs. I have a copy of Adobe PD 6.0 and an old version (2.0). I hate the newer one and have just always used the 2.0. I remember a problem installing it on W2kPro before. The error message is...

"There is not enough memory (RAM) to launch photoDeluxe" Can't even get it to open....

I know there is a way to allocate more RAM to the software but cannot remember how! I have a P4 with 120gb hard drive and 1056 megs memory. This is the only software, other than drivers, etc., that I have installed so memory shortage is not the problem. It is just the memory allocation... Can anyone help with this?
Thanks so much!!

I'm the same as you. Love the programme (I use version 3 - it didn't go up to version 6 by the way) but it's an old programme written for an older generation OS. I got mine to work fine and dandy by playing with the virtual memory which is the memory referred to in the error messages, not your physical memory, although there's no clue to that, I had to dig that out of the www.
Have a look at this thread.

Yes, the problem is solved by setting the Virtual Memory to zero or by increasing it beyond a certain minimum. Check out this page.

I got this from another forum and it works!

Go to Control Panel > System
Select the advanced tab. Go to Performance section and select Settings.
Select the advanced tab,again. Go to the Virtual Memory section and select Change.
Select Custom Settings.
Change Initial Setting to 4000MB and Max to 4095 MB. Hit set.
Close out the programs and restart.
