Getting error: Not enough quota is avialable to this command

Friends,

i've been getting this error : ""Not enough quota is avialable to this command"" quite oftenly especially for this application/program & name of the program is Kundli45.

I'm unable to identify the reason for this error, as i'm logged in as the Adminstartor & also running it as "Run as Admin" still getting this error everytime.

I want to know what are the reason for this type of error while installing such programs?

here's the screenshot:

Close some applications and try again. If you still get this message, choose System from Control Panel, then choose Virtual Memory and increase the size of your paging file.

Also from a Microsoft forum, this problem goes back to Vista.

Error 0x80070718: Not enough quota is available to process this command

Suggested fix is to increase Offline Files space:

Yeah, this sounds like desktop heap (the error message is actually pretty indicative of running out of session space, thus Windows cannot create the portions of the process required to display it, and fails).

This is usually not a common occurence on a Windows 7 system given that kernel memory is dynamic and no longer static, but if you run a lot of apps or are running on bare minimun requirements this can still happen. I do notice you have a Window Manager and perhaps an extra toolbar at the bottom - have you stopped loading these as a test (either stop from loading or uninstall temporarily) to see if the problem continues?

Tom the VM paging file is at maximum but still i'm getting the same (just did it now & got the same error).

But can you just let me know the path to make sure i did it correctly. Thnx (as i tend keep forgetting stuff)

Desktop heap is a part of session space, which is a (very small, by default) section of kernel memory. The paging file has nothing to do with this - please re-read my last post and see what you can do to troubleshoot this. The error is likely correct, though, that you're running out of desktop heap.

Hey Carl i got the 2nd part ie running on min.sys.req. but the 1st i missed as i got only 60% of it. But will answer the 2nd part as i got that.

Carl i tried running/installing the program with atleast 3-4 program running (as you can see in the screenshot) still i got the same error, so, i closed all the opened program & tried but it keep giving me the same error.

So, how can i resolve this issue??? Could you also help me with the term "desktop heap" as i'm not aware of that term.

We're starting to wade into deep waters - without an understanding of the basic Windows memory management, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to give you a good explanation of desktop heap. However, suffice to say desktop heap is the virtual address space the kernel uses to draw the desktop and all of the items on it. Depending on how much RAM you have in your system, this can be a *very* small space - under 40MB. It can grow larger, but only at the expense of another kernel resource, which may or may not be possible on your system. Assuming it's around 40 - 48MB of space, and depending on how much consumption of desktop heap is from your shell modifications, this could already be quite starved by the time you launch your first interactive application. Hence why I said that I noticed you'd modified the shell and added some customization programs, all of which would be direct consumers of desktop heap, and to see if removing them (uninstall if possible) as a test resolved the issue. If not, we may have to break out the debugger, which is a bit of a pain for desktop heap issues.

Maybe physical memory is malfunctioning, causing virtual to overload? Won't hurt to test the RAM with memtest86 for 5-6 passes or overnight to stress test.

Are you making system modifications or compound tweaking? This is death to Windows 7 which is already as lean as it can be.

May need a clean reinstall to shrug off any modifications and unnecessary tweaking, or to see if problem goes away.
