How much RAM does your computer have?

How big is the swap-file,
just before the error occurs?

How big is the swap-file,
after the error occurs?

How much free-space on your disk,
just before the error occurs?

How much free-space on your disk,
when the error occurs?

More RAM, or a larger swap-file,
or more unused disk-space may help.

I made some changes in the config.sys, increased the second setting for swappath, and so far all is working.

Thanks again Otta
