Out of memory with graphics in Word 2k

By Largenod2000 ·
A user designed a Word doc with screen captures under Win2K/Word 2K. It is 3 MB. Opens properly in Word app. This was placed on our intranet site and everyone's view of the doc fails at the same point on page eight where the screen shots no longer are viewable, though the rectangle is. Soon a message "out of memory or disk space to display or print the picture" appears. Sounds like some enviromental value being maxxed out? Anyone suggest a fix? It's IE 5.5 sp2.

Out of memory with graphics in Word 2k

I have also noticed this problem when attempting to print a doc in MS-Word 2K, and MS-Excel 2K.

This works for me:
- Delete
> Mso9intl.dll
> Msohelp.exe
> Msoffice.exe
- Re-install Office 2K

The doc opens fine as a Word doc, it's when it's placed for access through our intranet that the "out of" resources error occurs

Let's try for a corrupted document. See if you can find some answers here:

The doc is not corrupt. It can be emailed anywhere and opens properly with all graphics seen. It's only when viewing from our Intranet that errors occur, always at the same graphic

What format are the screen captures in?

I always convert them to jpg files when I do things like this. If the files are bmp format they will be huge and require a lot of memory.

You can save the jpg in into much smaller files saving memory when they are displayed.

I do that for all Programs and things I document with work and screen captured files.

I use HyperSnap-DX as the program to capture the screens. It saves the files direct to jpg so I do not have to convert them.

It can also capture the whole screen, just the active window, or just part of the window.

I'm reasonably sure that they simply "Saved as web page" through Word 2000.

this reminds me of an old problem so
before doing anything rush:

check the existence/setting of system environment variables TMP and TEMP

make sure you as a user have access/rights/permission to write to
the same location from where
you/word load/s the screen capture files

The problem was solved by a new creation of the doc, keeping the same graphics, yet lowering the total file size. It now opens fine.
