Hey all, I've been having a problem with some of my clients running the programs I make in Visual Basic. I have asked this question on a Visual Basic forum, but they had no idea. Besides, the problem is in XP, not VB.

A small percentage of my clients that use XP (it works for other XP users, though) recieve a fatal "Out of Memory" error when running a Visual Basic program. The amount of memory in their computers range from 256MB to 512MB, and swap files are large. Their computer is definately not running out of memory.

I have had them check a few things, and can report the following:
Closing down all other programs has no effect.
Changing or even disabling the swap file has no effect.
Trying every single combination of settings in Application Compatability has no effect.
Upgrading to the latest Windows XP Service Pack has no effect.

Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Arigato,
Gamer X

I suspect you'll have to attempt to get a failing XP configuration and track this down in the classic old programmer way. :) I had a similar situation with VC++ and specific machines that wouldn't run a package I wrote. I finally found an update to a 3rd party library that I used to fix it, but it wasn't until I had the failing configuration in my hands and could trace where the problem was actually happening.

Thanks :) I'll check to see if any of the info on those sites works for me, and let you know what happens.
