Windows 7: Changing memory page default

Changing memory page default

When trying to load a new program that needs 16MB of RAM I get a message saying I don't have enough RAM. I currently have 132984MB of unused RAM. If I change my memory paging default numbers to 199476 and 265968 would that work OK? It is currently at 5686-5686 set by a McAfee tech for a different problem. I have a Windows 7 system.

Processor: Intel CPU@3.10GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 4.00GB with 3.70 GB usuable
System Type: 64-bit Op System

When in the System folder/ drive list for the C drive shows that amount of available space.

Program is Print Shop Photo Pro

Are those numbers/units right, 132984MB would be over 100GB of ram ???
5686 sounds more like a real number = 5.5GB
Would system managed not solve the issue, increasing as required, or would that bring back a previous problem

Please fill in your system specs so we know what your running

16mb of ram? That is nothing. Are you sure about that number? I know the name print shop. That's a really old program I had for windows 98. Is this a very old program?

Try this: Compatibility Mode

Any program specifying a minimum of 16 MB of RAM must be very old. Some old applications had a problem with RAM sizes above 2 GB, which when they were developed was extremely large. A memory size over 2 GB was interpreted as a negative number which of course was less than the 16 MB minimum.

All you can do is try compatibility mode.

I seem to remember some old apps would tell you there's not enough memory because they weren't seeing enough bits of the number. Like you'd have 2 GB free and they'd think you only had like a few hundred KB free. Maybe it's running in a Dos box? Maybe it would run under Doxbox.

Some applications would read the memory size with a signed 32 bit integer. Perfectly safe with Win9x where RAM was limited to less than 1 GB. But any value between 2 GB and 4 GB would be interpreted as a negative number.
