So are you saying that all you did was configure Windows to give Premiere Elements 8 more RAM space -- similarly to the recommendation in the FAQs to the right of this forum?
It's hard to say exactly what will and won't work, since you are using this program on Windwows 7 64-bit, an operating system whose drivers are not yet fully 32-bit compatible.
The most important thing I did was to adjust a feature on my system (I will look for the article) which was an advanced
setting perference for windows. It was defaulted at 0 and they said change it to 400. Now its coming back;;;; it was something to do with
how long windows stores information for loading the system. As far as the RAM, my system has 6gb (or a number of mb) showing
on the profile setting. It said recomended setting to be like 2650 mb. (a certain amount naturally wasnt being used) I changed the
number to that higher setting allowed within the amount of RAM the system has,,,,(evidently my windows 7 setting was set as less)
and that also might have done the trick. So for whatever this advanced preference was on memory,,it was set at a WINDOWS default
which was less than was available. What is important is that I DO nOT remember what this system preference was. but I will try to google
the article again and get back
Thats what did it~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!!! INSANE? WELL PREMIERE 8 HAS
