Not enough memory when open Excel file

By kent2612 ·
When trying to open an Excel 2000 file on all Windows XP Pro computers, the 50MB Excel file will prompt 'Not enough memory'. The file however works fine on Windows 98 computers.

Any idea? Thanks in advance.

It may mean that the Win XP Pro user profile is damaged.

Try logging in with a different user name in Win XP and see if the file works.

IF it does that the 1st users profile needs to be deleted and recreated.

You will find the profiles in Win XP under Documents and Settings folder on the C drive.

The profile name is the same as the user login name.

Right click my computer =>(next)go to advanced tab=>Performance Options and increase the virtual memory size on drive c: or d:

256 RAM =>700Mb swap file (virtual mem)
128 Ram => 1.5 Gb swap

All Windows XP Pro computers are affected, it's not the problem with user profile. I have already tried increase the Paging file size.

XP Pro takes a lot more memory to just run Windows. I use a minimum of 512MB on all my XP Pro computers. W98 can run on considerably less and may actually have more memory free to load Excel.

Try to run Stinger in safe mode.
It might be problem of virus.
Then restart the machine .
