Word has insufficient memory.....

By Coolaldred ·
The error message "Word has insufficient memory. You will not be able to undo this action once it is completed. Do you want to continue?", when user try to download a .dot file from my company's intranet.After that, word program start and error message pop as mentioned above. Is that related to "hidden bookmark" problem posted at microsoft site? Any ideas?

It could also be related to how many applications the end user has open and how much memory is available.

I believe that the problem you are having is due to the Microsoft article above.

1. Check virtual memory allocation and ensure it is at least 750 / 750.

2. Close all office programs and do a search for *.dot on the entire computer. Once found, delete all instances of .dot .

Open word... should work just fine.

Don't do it! Don't delete all instances of dot

THe dot files are MS-Word's templates - delete all of them and you'll have a lot bigger problems than insufficient memory!

Close all instance of Office, find "" and rename it to normal.old. Restart Word. It might help. Deleting ALL dot file will NOT help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
