MS Project Professional 2010 - Configuration Failure - There is not enough memory to complete the operation

    Question

  • Windows 7 64, MS Office Pro 2010 installed add working - 4 gig of memory 500 gig +  of free disk space.  I  get the below results when trying to start project the first time.  

    Tried usual admin rights stuff and turning off norton and firewall.  Same results after re-install, restart, repair, you know all the usual.

     Note I borrowed the steps below from another thread that was never answered.

    1. Microsoft Project Professionnal 2010 popup: Configuration Progress splash screen with progress bar and yellow wave at bottom.

    2. Microsoft Office Project MUI (English) 2010 popup: Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Project MUI (English) 2010, then disappears.

    3. Microsoft Project 2010 logo popup with green wave at bottom.

    4. Steps 1-3 repeated 3 times.

    5. Microsoft Project popup: There is not enough memory to complete the operation.  To free up available memory, close programs, projects, or windows you aren't using, and try again.

  • Hi Justinas,

    Well, the original poster abandoned his question when asked to provide more information.  The only reference to memory I can offer is that contained in FAQ Item: 18. Memory Problems. FAQs, companion products and other useful Project information can be seen at this web address: http://project.mvps.org/faqs.htm

    Hope this helps - please let us know how you get on :-)

  • He gave up like the rest of us!  This is definitely "NOT ANSWERED"

  • Oh @ Mike Glen. This is NOT a memory issue, despite what the error message says. It is a serious bug in MS Projects 2007, 2010 and probably 2013, that prevents the use of the product for many "Paying" customers.

  • I located a solution, finally!  It was solved back in 2007. It is NOT a memory issue nor a conflict with other software as most of the forum advisers suggest. It is a pure MICROSOFT problem with Registry permissions. And as they provide no solution (as of 2014 yes 7 years) one has to use a registry hacking tool to take command  of the registry. The solution that worked perfectly for me is located here :

    Full thanks to David Chatfield for finding the answer back in July of 2007!
