Re: memory availability !

Dear Masoud,

The error code is:

#define ERROR_COMMITMENT_LIMIT 1455L

which means that Firefly is asking for more memory than OS is capable to map into its address space.

My guess is that the issue you reported is something to do with client vs. server versions of Windows OS.

All the best,
Alex
