Error launching Insight on 32-bit Windows machine
If you are running on a 32-bit Windows machine, you might encounter the following errors when launching Insight:
- Error occurred during initialization of VM.
- Could not reserve enough space for object heap.
- Could not create the Java virtual machine.
What it means
On a 32-bit Windows operating system, you cannot reliably allocate more than approximately 700MB of memory for a single application in the DUG Insight Launcher. This is a fundamental design defect of 32-bit Windows. To solve this problem, reduce the memory allocation or upgrade to a 64-bit Windows operating system.
