Anyone with experience with ImageQuant v1.4?

jvfalcone
One of our lab departments uses this software to analyze phosphoric scans of blood particles.

When loading an image to the program, it freezes right away with "IQ is out of memory"

I guess they've had luck reducing virtual memory to 256-511 in the past. As well as running compatibility for xp sp3. Even with these adjustments, it will still freeze up. At best the program will allow you to load an image, but when magnifying it (they need 200%) it freezes still.

I am running windows 7 x32, AMD athlon, and 4 GB of RAM. I've read in other places that IQ does not support RAM over 1 GB.

Anyone experience this proble, before?

    when it comes to issues involving graphics, you should install a graphics board onto the motherboard.

    these boards provide the additional power to the o.s. because not only does it have a chip for processing graphics but also additional memory.

    any gaming graphics board with 1 gig of processing memory, will supercharge your computer and graphics production.

    Thanks for the input. What I ended up doing was downgrading the RAM from 4 GB to 2 GB. so far its working beautifully.

    you're welcome.

    i was going to suggest that as a solution too but i have learned that people get offended and believe they are downgrading their system, instead of improving its stability.

    incidentally, there is a pae switch that can be used in xp for managing large memory. but since you have the system working, its probably a moot point.
