    Please help: MS Project 2007 Fresh Install first launch yields Memory error

    I am using Microsoft Project 2007 which is newly installed on Windows Vista. When I am launching it, then a lot of configuration happens, etc, finally gives me an error message that says "There is not enough memory to complete this operation." I have restarted and tried it again, but again it gave some error. Even launching in safe mode, it gives me same error. I did a diagnose and repair as well as uninstalled and reinstalled it, but nothing works. Can anyone please help.

    I dont think that you have a ram issue, check for free hard drive space instead. You can check the same by right clicking on the hard drive and then go to Properties. Check out the system requirements that is given on this link - . Incase you have free hard drive space left then it might be a Windows problem.

    Even I am getting the same error message, and have been trying to install Project 2003 on my Vista system. I did download the Service Pack 3 to Project but that didnt work for me. I also checked some links for checking the memory issues but still nothing. Can anyone help us out with this problem? Thanks.

    Its very annoying that there is nothing logged to any event log which I can find. When I am getting this sort of problem then an error event is logged and it can be used for a basis of investigation, but the only events related to MS Project that get logged in my scene is success? I am alos seeing the unusual "Configuring" dialogs cycling for what seems to be an unusual number of times, but I am going to run again and count off how many times it does the config/spash/progress meter and wonder if you might do the same.

    I was also having the same issue and I found out that it is indeed a Vista registry permissions problem. I solved it by downloading the resource kit tool subinacl and issuing the following two commands to grant administrator access to all registry entries:

    subinacl /subkeyreg KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f

    After doing that, I can start Project 2007 as an administrator but running without administrator privilege resulted in the whole configuration be

    After that I was able to start Project 2007 as an administrator but running
    without administrator privilege resulted in the whole configuration failure again. So I thought that the issue was the Project entries in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, and then I gave user read access to those by issuing the following commands:

    After doing all that I was finally able to Start MS Project 2007 with no configuration screens appearing at all. I think that the user level commands on their own would be enough to solve the issue.
