A lot of good and useful info. Thank you.
Now, memory/resources is RAM and also the Page File. There are many things that can sap those resources, that do not apply to editing. This ARTICLE will give you some tips for freeing up as many resources, as is possible. This can be a two-step process: cleaning up bloatware, and then getting ready for an editing session.
Also let us know all about your Page File (Windows Virtual Memory), how it's managed, its size, its location, and then give us a description of your system's HDD's, with their size, speed, free space, controller type and how you have them allocated.
As for Runtime Errors, MS has several C++ Runtime DLL's on their site. There were some issues with several Vista, and at least one for XP-Pro. Check their site for the Runtime Library that matches your exact OS and version.
[Edit] Here is an Adobe TechNote on C++ Runtime Errors.
Bill, I have now received nearly 10 emails from you about things I have no
concern for. I truly appreciated your attempt to help me out but let's try
to do something about the excessive mail to others that I am receiving.
These have to be because you are subscribed to the fora. I have sent you one PM, and that is all. Take a look at this ARTICLE on setting e-mail notifications. There are several places and ways that one can become subscribed to either a thread, or to a particular forum.
Again, I responded to you via one PM only. I have not e-mailed you and do not even know your POP account to do so. It is a setting in your Adobe Forum, or your Adobe.com Profile that is contributing to these.
Hope that that article and the settings help. Going back to the last forum update, one poor user commented in the Forum Comments forum, on dozens of e-mails that she was receiving, and all were every post that another user made. I offered her the article and some instructions, about the time that Adobe stepped in to help her. Well, wires must have gotten crossed, as suddenly, I was receiving an e-mail from every post in every forum that I had visited - about 1,000 per day, and all of my e-mail notifications were set to OFF. Fortunately, Adobe got that straightened out, so I only had about 5,000 e-mails to delete. They also were able to help her too.
I'm starting to get frustrated since the documentary was supposed to be finished the 5th
Not ideal but a workaround, so it can at least be played, would be to export it as DV-AVI or WMV so that it can at least play in Media Player. Or, once exported, load it into Windows Movie Maker and burn from there (you will have to redo any menus).
