I am getting this error message:

"there is not enough memory to open this scene. Your document is not damaged and may be safely saved.
To increase available memory, close open documents or quit and use the Get Info command in the Finder to allocate more memory to flash"

My Os is windows 2000 advance server.

Every where i search, the answer is only for Mac.

What is the answer for a P.C.

Can't say it really works, but it worths a try.

Using some memory clean up utilities first, so that it frees up more space

Here are a few freewares

I am not Windows professionals, so may be you can ask about memory allocation problem in the Windows area :)

what is in that scene?
you might be able to clean up some memory for it, but at the end of the day, if its that hectic, you should be doing it differently.

That's my opinion. Does it affect your CPU usage?

how much memory do you have on ur machine.
