More about verify running memory
  1. went in where. what your specs. have you aplied any patches, are you sure it works on your o.s. some older games wont work on win 7 for instance.
  2. I used to have that game.
    It ran well for me and I've got Windows 7. Make sure that you've enabled compatibility mode while trying to run the game.
    Also, what do you mean by the 'running memory'?
  3. he probably means RAM usage

    Me neither...

    If you want to see how much memory your game is using, you can ALT+TAB while the game is playing and go to task manager and see how much memory the game is using.

    Thx for your response no patchs available as far as i know & i read that older games don't recognise more than 2-gigs of ram & I have 4 now & yes it is possible to limit it, unfortunately no luck so far I'm going to try a virtual XP & see if that works thx again.

    yes, virtual XP should work.
    But did you try out compatibility mode first?
  8. Yes I tried that didn't work thx
  9. What about virtual XP?
  10. Ya I tried that last night same thing thx anyway
  11. try using MSCONFIG go to run and type msconfig go to the boot tab/advanced and the max memory option and set it to 2048

    Then reboot.
