Problem with THPS4
So guys, I'm trying to play THPS4 and when I'm going to start the game appears some error saying.

"THPS4 failed to launch. The system appears to be out of memory or resources."

My PC has about 4 years old and in the first year that I received it I installed THPS4 and played it really well. But like all the games, I mastered it and unistalled but now I feel like playing the game again and this error occurs

I hope you guys could give me some help, I searched for troubleshooting for this a lot and I couldn't solve it.

By "THPS4" and your name, I'll assume that you mean Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4.
That's a pretty old game....well before Windows Vista.
If you've already searched for a fix, you've found that it doesn't run on Vista.
I've used VMLite XP Mode for older games and have had good success...maybe this will work for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4.

Hello ProSkater

Did you get any error/issue when you tried the VMLite XP mode.

Can you confirm that when you played the game before, it was on another OS other then Visa. Vista does eat up allot of RAM. A computer that has 3GB may dedicate allot of it to Vista.

Does the issue occur when you try to install the game or run the game (you mentioned that you uninstalled it in the past). Try to do a disk defragementation for better optimization.

You can also go into msconfig and stop any unneccessary processes running to free up some more system resources and see if that helps.

Other then that, you can also upgrade your RAM and try the VMLite XP mode again and see if that solves the issue.

The issue must be with your PC and not the game itself.
I tested the Tony Hahk Pro Skater 4 demo in Windows 7 64bit
and within VMLite XP Mode and it played perfectly in both.

Maybe try updating the 4+ year old video drivers.
