Runtime Error 7 out of memory


  • Hi All 


    I have encountered an issue with windows 2003 enterprise edition 

    Basically i have 'x' ammount of programs running on a core i7 6gb machine.

    However the mem usage gets to around 1.12gb and around 40 of the same programs running and i get the following error Runtime Error 7 out of memory.

    now i'm not sure why this happens i know it's not the memory as i have had this tested could anyone enlighten me to why this is happening?

  • This kind of error is generated by a program when it encounters an error it cannot recover from.  In technical terms, it is 'an unhandled exception'.  This is unlikely to have anything to do with the operating system, but more likely from a custom or line-of-business applicaton running on the server.
