    Insufficient memory...


    Hi

    We are getting an error message of "insufficient memory for file map" message
    whilst processing files in Foxpro.

    Our server is a WIN 2000 server which has 2gb ram with twin AMD processors.
    We are running VFP 6.

    Is there an obvious an answer, such as upgrading to VFP7, or is it more complex,
    such as a problem with WIN 2000 server or the way the AMD chips are working?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Smart

    Smart,
    Unless you are running the app on a Terminal Server/Citrix, it's unlikely
    that your server configuration has anything to do with this message. The
    more important question is what is the typical configuration of the
    workstations using this app? (OS, RAM, disk space, network connection, other
    apps running, etc.) Does this happen at startup? If not, is there some
    consistent location in the app that causes it? Also, what Service Pack of
    VFP 6.0 are you running?

    Thanks for the response Rick,

    We are running the programs via terminal server\ remote desktop connection.

    This error happens at the same point every time, when the file is about 1.2
    gb in size.

    Not sure on what service pack of foxpro6 we have - how do I find out and
    we do I get the latest version?

    Thanks again

    Smart

    Check out the following URL for Service Pack 5:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/do.../sp5_dwnld.asp

    If use issue a ? VERSION(4) at the Commond Window, it will give
    you not only the version of VFP, but the build. I laughed when
    I check one here because it isn't the latest build on the PC I
    checked. SP4 was/is build 8862. So SP5 should be > 8862.

    The easiest way to see the Service Pack value is to get the menu
    and choose Help...About Microsoft Visual FoxPro. The first line
    in the dialog box should show the SP version you are looking for.

    If you're in the development version of VFP, you can check the version with
    the menu Help/About Microsoft Visual FoxPro. That will give you both the
    service pack info and version number.

    FYI, the version for SP5 is 06.00.8961.00, and in the runtime environment
    you will have to add some code to display to use the VERSION(4) function or
    you could check the runtime files directly from Windows. Using Explorer,
    locate your runtime files VFP6R.DLL or VFP6T.DLL. In XP, hover the mouse
    over the file name and it will show you the info, in other OS's, right click
    and choose Properties from the menu and then choose the Version tab.

    Thank for your help on all this, guys.

    Just thought I would let you know that adding the service pack onto VFP7
    solved the memory problem and the processing sailed through first time!

    Thanks again.
