FS9 crashing upon start up.

Recommended Posts

FS9 keeps telling me upon start up it has run out of available memory to run FS9. I have tried running disk clean up, and restarting my computer. Any other ideas guys? I have well over 120 gigs of free space left on my HD so there is no way I'm out of room to run the game. I have heard fixing the page or paging file may help? I found a tutorial for fixing it on XP but I'm not quite sure where to start on Vista.

Hello,Methink it's not a memory problem (at least when just starting FS2004)It's seem's to me a generic error message who indicate certainly some corrupted file in your FS2004 installation and this corruption cause a "memory leak"I readed manytimes the same about some BGL .. etc .. files.Lucky .. I never experienced this myself in 10 years in the "hobby" :)Regards.bye.gif

How much RAM have you got? I run XP with 2GB and have no problems, but you may well need double this with Vista as the OS itself occupies a lot of RAM.Can't help with the paging file location - I know where it is in XP but not Vista, someone else will need to help out with that. :(

I believe there are 4 gigs of ram on this computer. It played fine for almost a year without any problems so I don't understand why all of the sudden...I may just go for a full re-install if I have to...although I'm not looking forward to re-installing all my add-ons.
