Memory error in FSX.

Has anyone come across this error and know how to fix it.

Your computer is out of memory restart Microsoft Flight Simulator.

It just started happening the last few days with FSX. The only thing that has changed with FSX is that I was trying to install a 777 that I found flightsim downloads. I still can't get it to work, but that for the add-on forum to help me with.

You dont have space to run the files that make the fs run, uninstall it or remove things with a lot of space

Excuse me. I have 46GB left of a 200 split in two GB HD left. So I do have space.

this has nothing to do with disk space, and is about memory at runtime.

this happens due to either fragmented memory so a block of a certain size cannot be allocated, or just plain out of process address space.

and that entire thread ( and the link I point to ) are worthwhile reading.

part of that thread discusses how to do the same on XP. it may be in Bill's linked instructions.

Okay Phil, I'm starting to understand that I have to add /3G tag in my boot.ini file, but here's what I don't understand. Why is this happening now, I've ran FSX with NO problems at all, until I tried (still am) to install a 777 that found online. Every since then I'm getting this error. Do you think its causing it or is it because my FSX is &%^% up some how or I'm running to many programs in the background at the same time?

This is likely due to the new add-on you are running. New, complex add-ons add to the memory load and it is possible they push FSX over the 2G boundary even if they are well behaved. If the add-on has a memory leak, that is another possibility.
