I've seen this message in one of my programs after some BDE error messages have been launched by the program which I did'nt properly trap.

After I trapped these errors (using a Try/Except), the "Insufficient memory for this operation" error did'nt come up anymore.

And, of course, you must always close a TQuery if you don't use it. In the OnClose event of all your MDI Childs close and unprepare all queries used in the MDI Child.

Don't worry, whenever exception occurs, never push
the 'Program Reset' button, but the 'Run', so you
can close your application normally, and you will not
get the penalty of memory.

How do you think of my English?

Hello!

To Make the BDE use memory it needs and not giving the BDE any limits in memory usage and other things,Here are the steps:

1)Run BDE Administrator
2)go to Configuration Tab
3)Under Configuration Tab go to INIT
And Use the following options:

LOW MEMORY USAGE LIMIT: 32
MAXBUFSIZE: 2048
MAXFILEHANDLES:48
MEMSIZE: 16
MINBUFSIZE: 128
SHAREDMEMSIZE: 2048

After you set these options ,It's going to be very hard to get that pesky error message again!

Good Luck! ;-)

? ams
did you mean you run 6 instances
and the error comes up by starting the 7th instance

or
do you open/close 6 times normally your app and the error comes with the 7th try

or
do you open 6 times your app, each one after the other crashes with another error

???

to wlq,
your english is ok and
your advice is correct

meikl ;-)

kretzschmarCommented:
well,
then it could be that your error,
didn't has to do anything with the bde,
you are running just out of systermresources

(just to say that you are also cannot start unlimited instances of winword for ex.)

why does you mean, that the error is caused by the bde?

ams4380361Author Commented:
Ok ,
i know that i can't start unlimited no. of instances , but i have 200MB/256MB free , and a 3% CPU utilization, so the system is not loaded and almost free of load.

Note : using a Server with 2GB Ram , i can't start more that 20 instances. is that a shortage of memory resources.!!!!!!

kretzschmarCommented:
there may other resources affected (not just memory)
like gdi-resources or any kind handles

ams4380361Author Commented:
Ok,

but can you explain the fact that i can run more than 22 instances of the same program if i build it using VB6.0

( the same functionality)

kretzschmarCommented:
in fact,
vb shares its vbrun-dll,
where the most code is included

ams4380361Author Commented:

you could try to use runtimepackages->compilerswitch

AvonWyssCommented:
The solution would be to make "ghost" instances, so that most resources are shared. So, after the first instance runs, running another instance will check if it is already running and if it does, just send a message to the first instance that a new main window is needed. This would allow you to share many resources without any problem.

Also note that the resources on Windows 9x/ME are far more limited than under NT/2000/XP. So if the server you were talking about is running another OS, this may be one of the reasons...

The best solution is to switch from the BDE to something else :)
