Crash to Desktop
For the past month I have been going down in flames. Granted I have installed Ultimate Traffic, Megascenery New York, But I'm not always in the New York Area. I get the usual respones "Windows XP has detected a problem with MS Flight simulator and will be shut down. It also says I am short on virtual memory and this will be increased. I always thought virtual memory was using disk space as memory r/w when you ran out of real memory. I have one Gig of High speed ddr 3200 ram. More than enough for this program to run, isn't it? I decided to run in windowed mode and monitor the task manager. Every thing seems to be okay. CPU usage around 50%. BUT! Ram usage continues to climb as the program runs. I'm not flying, just sitting at the end of the active runway watching the Heavies land and depart. The main culprit seems to be Page file usage. These total continue to rise, even when the simulation is paused and I'm just watching the task manager. There are three levels to this indicator.They are Total, Limit and Peak. The Total and peak seem to move in lock step. When they reach the peak number, which varies very little, BAM! FS9 crashes. This number for page file usage starts at the begining of the sim and continues to increase as time passes. It will always crash, given enough time. I'm not adverse to purchasing anothe 512K of memory, but it seems all this will do is buy me more time before FS9 takes a nose dive into the desk top. Rather a long post, but I'm counting on a Guru on this site to let me know if I have a problem or is the problem with FS9. thankyou
