VAJ Enterprise Edition 2.0. On startup displays - Fatal Application Error : 12 - 'Not enough memory'.

Posted on 2004-09-30
Last Modified: 2010-03-31
When trying to start Visualage for Java Enterprise Edition 2.0 on Windows 2000 I get the following message:-

Fatal Application Error
Exit due to error: 12 - Not enough memory

Then it shuts down.  I have 512M RAM (and even tried it with 1G!) so I am at a loss to know what the error is.
My IDE.ICX file is 172M by the way, just in case it has any relevance.

Thanks, Paul

How ist VAJ started? I never used it myself.
If there is a batch file or shell script  look for the startup option to the Java VM.
You may set then with -Xms<size> and -Xmx<size> the amount of memory the VM should use

e.g. java ... -Xms128m -Xmx768m ...

Hope this helps

I quote:

That error message has nothing to do with the amount of physical RAM you
have, and rebooting won't help. That message is almost always associated
with a corrupt workspace. Replace your workspace (IDE.ICX) file with a new
one and you should be fine. New workspace files can be found on the VAJ
installation CD or from here:

Sorry CEHJ, honestly I really found this one myself
Didn't see any posts at the moment of posting.
Some autorefresh in QP would be nice isn't it?

Don't worry - that wasn't a complaint ;-) It certainly has the benefit of a clear confirmation

Thanks for accepting.
