Windows 7: Out of memory error

23 Oct 2009   #11

Window 7 Home Edition 64-bit

Ok. I've read all the posts re: the "out of memory" error that occurs about 30 min into a flight and FSX shutting down. This is such a pain. As a newbie, can you please go throught the steps to correct this error? I've been reading that this is not a new problem. I have i-7 2.8 ghz processor, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeF GTS240 with 1024 dedicated, and 1TB hard drive. This shouldn't be an issue with such a robust system.

"Out of Memory" error in FSX

I read your post and went to the Microsoft web page. The patches have to do with Vista. Again, I'm running Windows 7 and these patches do not apply to my system.

Windows 7 64 RTM

its gotta be a set up issue with your system

my rig runs

Win 7 64bit RTM
AMD2+ 2.8ghz Kuma Core
ASUS M3N78-VM Motherboard
500 gig maxtor
2 x 2GB Corsair Memory
BFG 9500GT - 1GB Dedicated Memory

never had the run out of memory issue

clean install on Tues this week all drivers updated
Install was just left to go in as Standard

Have Flight Sim X and Acceleration which also has the Update Patch installed

Havn't needed to run it in Compatabilitly Mode either

Only other thing i remeber from Vista Days was you had to have the FSX install on the same Drive as your Operating System otherwise i got loads of BSOD's

From what I recall "out of memory" errors usually relate to virtual address space. I assume that Flight Simulator X can use more then the allotted memory for a 32-bit OS. But something else maybe involved as you should be able to use it without it erroring out.

Are you using a modified install of Windows 7 (IE: slipstreaming, etc)? The only other suggestion is to right click on the icon of the game, go to Compatibility tab and place checkmarks for Disable Visual Themes and Disable Desktop Composition. See if that lets you play the game.

Running in compatibility mode makes no difference.
