Shockwave out of memory error

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

While I am playing some small games this shockwave error is always appearing after about 10-15 mins after the game had been launched.

Any idea on this error?



Out of memory loading member 133 of PLAYER-CAST 42, even after purging all purgeable castmembers.

Shockwave out of memory error


Dear Zion,

It appears you are yet another victim of the Memory Leakage that Shockwave player exhibits sometimes. Some applications' memory usage keeps going higher and higher until eventually this error appears. Depending on the amount of RAM onboard the system, this takes anywhere between 5mins to 50mins.

My suggestion would be to first check if your Shockwave player is up to date. (Some these similar issues have been taken care of the recent updates)

Secondly, I would suggest you clear out your Temp Folder.

Close all your running programs and go to C:WindowsTemp and clear it out. Perhaps this will help too.

This issue is one of the reasons we do not see shockwave as much as flash.

Good luck.
