Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Out of memory

    Using the A5 "down and dirty" compiler with A5 V11 on Windows 7 64 bit and 32 GIG's of memory returns an out of memory error. I am thinking that this error is not descriptive of what is really happening in this case. Has anyone had an issue like this. I am encrypting the scripts. I wonder if that may be creating a situation whereby it goes into a loop until it fills up the memory. I have no idea, just throwing out thoughts.

    Anyone have a suggestion or found their way through this before?

    What installer, alpha is not a compiler program. Are you talking about the installer?

      Re: Out of memory

      You might get an OOM message if your database is contrructed illogically. Individuals items may work but as a whole, it might not when you build an installation using Alpha Installer.
      Suggest you make a backup, then verify the build by closing all widows and running the clean up process by comp acting the database.

        Re: Out of memory

        Yes, I am referring to the alpha five installer. I do update all indexes and compact the database before running the create an install routine.

        The actual error returned is

        UI_MODELESS_DLG_BOX:Alpha Five InstallMaker line: 230
        sys_shell(command line)
        Out of Memory

        if that helps.

        The same error occurs whether I encrypt the files or not and whether I use all defaults through the process or not.

        The size of my application directory without Runtime installed in it is 161 MB; with Runtime - 433 MB.

        I tried it with and without Runtime installed in the same directory. No difference.

          Couple of basic checks.
          Is the development the same build as the runtime?
          Are all windows closed?
          Can you create a new database with one table in it and build an install version?
          What happens when you build only the application and NOT the app with the runtime?
          Are you using Grids in the Forms?
          Have you installed V12 at any time?

          If you search for "out of memory" and include the quotes, you might find some clues. Like a corrupt memo field, or incomplete copy of support files if you moved the database.

            Re: Out of memory

            Not a good idea to install runtime in the same folder with the data. It will work, though. I just did a large database folder and included the install(another folder) along with a few other things and the whole thing was a 116m exe to send. I have a few at about 140m, but that is all I have run into.

            You can zip the folders and have them unzip to your folder of choice as well. That would be similar in size to a astrum installed file. With the astrum installer, I can make sure the stuff alpha needs to run is installed, like c++ runtime, dhtml, etc.

              Re: Out of memory

              I did try creating a simple app with one dbf and 1 form using all defaults and nothing special. I installed runtime in its default directory and tried again. Same error. Out of memory! Regarding the other checks you suggest, I do not know about differnet builds. I will look into that.

              I do not use grids, never installed V12, my application that I am trying to create an install for is one that I have been using live for over two years.

              I am only building the app and not with runtime.

              Other stats:

              A5 V11, Build 3381
              Developer Edition
              Addin Build 4096
              C Compiler Version 1600

              Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
              Service Pack 1
              32 Gig of memory

              Thanks for all your help.

                I am not familiar with astrum. Could you please educate me?

                  Hi Ted,

                  Runtime Plus and A5v11 are the same builds.

                    Re: Out of memory

                    google "astrum installer" and you should be able to download it for free. It has pretty good docs.
                    I don't use the grids and don't know what needs to be done to add them to an installer. Others here who do should have an idea.
                    Steve Woods uses a different installer that he likes and I know he has delivered an app with grids.

                      Gene, try building this in V11.
                      It is a V10 app, but should build and deploy OK.
                      If it won't, suggest you reload V11 RT and Dev.

                          Thank you Ted. Your application did not build either. I have tried reloading A5 Developer as well as Runtime countless times. It would seem that my original download has an issue. Would you agree?

                            Possibly.
                            I can upload a V11 version to Dropbox if you need a copy of RT and Dev.
                            You should be able to download the originals and last patches again anyway.

                              Gene, if you still have your original email for the order, you should be able to download both from the email link. Those should be the latest copies as well.

                              If that does not work, there may be something on your system causing the problem.

                              Are all your files on your c:\ drive and not a usb or other device?

                              Be sure that if you are going to make a clean install, you need to remove all of alpha first and clean it all out of the registry before installing new.
