    Hi everyone!,

    I'm getting this "Insufficient Memory" error when I try to run MSAccess. I
    know the hardware is no problem since this is installed in a workstation
    that also runs CAD and 3D software. Windows XP Pro is installed and all the
    updates applied.

    Anyone have any ideas why would this error be happening?

    Thanks a lot in advance!!!

    If you have 1 GB or more of RAM, then the hardware _is_ the problem. Jet
    3.0 and 3.5 can't use memory addresses that cover that large a range, so it
    tells you it's "Out of memory" when starting Access. You'll need to
    uninstall some of that memory if you want to use your current version of
    Access.

    Well, there _is_ an alternative that would be far easier. Nah. It wouldn't
    do you any good, because you told us that you already have all the updates
    applied on your computer. Do you think perhaps your Windows administrator
    may have been mistaken when he told you he installed all the updates?

    And surely you don't have _that_ really, really old version of Access
    installed on your computer without the Office updates, or you'd have
    mentioned it. Wouldn't you? ;-)

    HTH.

    Is this Access 97? Have you installed the Office 97 patches, SR-1,
    SR-2 and Jet 3.5 SP3?
