  • Win 16 Subsystem error

    Hello Everyone...

    This is my first time at this forum but i've been told many many good things about the people here so i've finally given in to trying a new way of searching for help. In spite of my years of CMM experience, i don't feel i'm really experienced in cmm programming but i'll try and be as helpful based on my past experiences as possible and will appreciate any help along the way as well. having said that, here is the problem i'm experiencing. i'm running PCDMIS 3.2 with Datapage 3.32 on an XP machine and get the following message: "The win 16 subsystem has insufficient resources to continue running. click on ok, close your applications, and restart your machine."
    If i don't restart the machine, it will keep coming up and if i do restart it then normally it goes away for awhile. I've talked with our reseller and they had me download a hotfix for windows that was supposed to fix the problem but it hasn't fixed it. has anyone else run into this problem?

    thanks,

    Josh

    Well, how often do you re-boot the computer on a regular basis? Windoze has long had a problem of NOT clearing out the memory when a program is done executing, it seems to 'hold-the-code' just in case you re-open the program, trying to be quicker, I guess. But, it IS annoying. However, using those versions of Pcdmis, you are using a 16-bit application and XP is (I think) 32-bit. You might have to change your PC properties to allocate MORE of the 32-bit system recorses into 16-bit. I think you can do this by right-clicking on the EXE icon for the application and going into the properties for that application, be it Pcdmis or Datapage.

      Welcome.

      Other than that, I've got nothing.

        are you talking about the compatibility tab in properties? i can modify it in the pcdmis .exe file but not the datapage one because datapage is installed on the network.

          That could ALSO be part of the problem. Pcdmis/Datapage does have issues (depending on the version) when working over networks.

                I do not know if PCDMIS 3.2 is a 32 bit or 16 bit process. DPUPDATE.EXE is a 16bit app back then (stats transfer between pcdmis & datapage).
                DP3.32 is mostly 32bit (Editor is still 16).
