not enough ram to open this program
Posted on 1997-05-31
Anyone with experience with Caere's Omnipage Pro V5 might help to
solve this mystery.After" successful installation",a message box informs
"not enough memory to open program".Yet there should be plenty.This MAC
Performa 475 has 12 mb physical RAM and runs with MacDoubler 2.0 which
says it yields 3x or 36mb.I have tried all the standard remedies:run
with all extensions off,increase memory partition in the
program,reinstall program,virtual memory on or off,and running a known "good" system file from a second disk as suggested by an expert on this site etc etc.All to no avail.
Because a whole raft of other programs run appropriately on this rig,I can only guess there"s a fatal bug in the original software
A call to the Caere "support" people yielded an expensive (my nickel
though registered) and futile half hour with a willing but baffled
"helper".She gave me her email address so she could communicate the
wisdom of a "higher" source but alas,she never called back or responded
to my email.These folk also refuse to "support"older versions of their
ever revised versions of this software.
Any help would be appreciated.
