Software using to much virtual memory!
Posted on 2004-10-10
The problem consists in "blocking" the computer(big amount of page file-memory) while using a Finite Element Analysis software.
First of all I had a clean reinstall of windows. I have installed the FEMethod software(SAP2000) and it was working normal (fast).By fast, I mean when I was opening the program, it took only 1 minute to display all the menus in the program.
Than, I installed another software of FEA(ROBOT).
Now, SAP2000 takes 10 minutes to open and is using like 300 Mb of memory. In the Task Manager the total page file size becomes 600-700 Mb.
I have WinXP Pro and 384 DDR.
Seems to be a compatibility problem.
How can I solve the problem?
