I've developped a Brain Training application for Japan with
the french version of Director MX 2004.
To display Japanese texts, I have used embedded Flash movies
which contains a Japanese font.
This program is on the market for a few weeks now, and some
users have experienced a "memory shortage" problem : When the
application starts, they get a director player error message saying
something like "out of memory" in Japanese.
Here for the exact message.
This has got to be linked with loading into memory many Flash
movies, because I have never had this kind of message in my many
other applications which do not use Flash movies to display texts.
This error has not appeared in the testing process on many
computers in Japan and France, and now that the product is out, I
need to find a solution
These users have decent computers : Windows XP SP2, 1.6 Ghz
processor, 512Mb RAM, plenty free memory and even more virtual
This error is not due to a lack of available memory on the
system : I have checked the memory usage and there is lots of free
I have found a function called getError() to check if an
error occured while loading the Flash member into memory, but it is
not clear what is the reason of such a memory error, and it doesn't
say what happens if this error is not intercepted with this
function : Does a message pops up ?
Did somebody ever saw this error message ?
Anybody knows the reason of such an error ?
Also, could somebody explain this getError function more
I would really appeciate any help with this issue !!
