[#0005ff]You almost certainly have enough memory but XP gets confused when faced with a 16 bit programme because it uses 32 bit memory differently. To work around this, right click the main executable file of the proramme and go to Compatibility Mode. Select Windows '98 and see if that gets the utility going.[/#000ff]

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Which programme is causing you this problem?

It's probably an older program that requires EMS (expanded memory). Right click the program and look at the memory tab. You should see expanded memory (EMS), extended memory (XMS) and MS-DOS protected mode (DPMI) memory. If you are missing the EMS, it may not run. Make sure himem.sys is being loaded in your config.nt file as well as dos=high,umb.
