No more virtual tiles can be allocated error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am encountering an error on Adobe running Windows 7. It is showing:


No more virtual tiles can be allocated.


I'm pretty sure that I have enough RAM space but I still tried to increase memory usage, but the error still appears. I want to know how can I allocate more virtual tiles? Please help as I have no idea what the error means. Thanks.

First of all, try to have an administrator privilege on running the scratch disk or try changing the scratch disk allocation in Photoshop Preferences. Go to Edit then Preferences and go to Performance.

Also, does your computer has a single partition? You can also try to shrink your primary partition and add another partition so you will have 2 local drives. Photoshop will create Temp folder on your new logical drive. This is a normal error on Computers running Windows Vista or Windows 7 that has a single partition only. Photoshop wants to create a scratch file in the root directory of your main drive and Windows Vista and 7 does not allow making scratch files by default. For more resolution, try the following:

1. Try to right-click Photoshop and then run it as the administrator when you launch it instead of double-clicking on its icon.

2. Alter the permissions on the root directory of your drive so anyone can make and edit the files there.

3. Make another partition.
