I keep getting a 'memory exception' error toward the end of my installation of V12 on a machine with 256K Ram.

Would that be an XT 8088, without a fully populated RAM bank? Sorry, I couldn't resist that one... [smile]

If your machine actually has 256 Meg of RAM, you've got plenty of memory. But please supply some more information, such as the CPU, operating system version, and free disk space.

Until then, you might try turning off your screen saver and other "power management" features which can sometimes interfere with a lengthy install process.

In IMHO 256K is not plenty, more like minimum, closer to not nearly enough! I don't think a memory exeption error has anything to do with the amount of memory, but more info on specs is needed.

PAOS,

Try booting into safe mode and installing VectorWorks. This solution was actually provided to the tech support team by a customer who called in having the same problem.

Other programs that might be running without your knowledge (such as spyware) can cause this issue. Booting into safemode will prevent most of those types of programs from being loaded.
