I'm trying to use the Portable Apps at work on a windows 2000 pro system, Pentium 4 with 500mb ram.
I work for a very large airline in Canada and all our computers are maintained by IBM with the same hardware and setup.
I get the following message in a dos window when trying to start the 1.0.1 patch of Portable Apps, "program to big to fit into memory"
I'm running it off an 8GB flash drive, the computers have no problem with that device.
I've tried Portable Apps on 12 different computers now and all give the same error message.
I have a XPPro system at home (AMD XP2600+), and an old laptop (XPPro AMD 466mhz p3) and it runs fine on both of those using the same flash drive.
This problem has now been confirmed as a problem with the flash drive. after unplugging it from the computer, the memory is slowly failing.
The manufacturer of the device was Alcor.
