    The disk that you have your "swap file" on is full?
    free up some HDD space?

    30 GB should be more than enough.
    You need to check on the swap file settings.

    Control Panel - System - Advanced - (the rest depends on your Operating System version which we don't know, but its the "virtual memory" settings).

    Increase the amount, or set it to "let windows manage...".
    If its already managed by Windows, see where its keeping it, maybe you have a separate partition on the drive?

    Or, maybe its an erroneous error message that is caused by something quite different.....

    Well, you have answered your own question...

    It needs a paging file, but your PC is set for "no page file"

    Tick the "system managed" option, which should enable it. You will probably need to reboot following the change, it will tell you.

    Well untick the 'no pagefile' thats whats causing the problem

    Set the pagefile onto your main C drive. Set the minimum to 512mb and the maximum to 512mb.

    Apply changes and reboot when prompted. Then fire up Adobe Photoshop and see if ure still getting the same error.


    If you're interested in more info on the virtual memory business, go to PC World and use the search tool. There are some good articles on it. Cheers.

    please don't go setting a maximum setting as you will simply run into the same problem later on

    So, just set a minimum?
    If you put a minimum as 512 mb, what does that mean? It wont use it untill there is 512mb of stuff to put in there or something? (I wouldnt have a clue). But if thats what it is, wouldnt it be better setting the minimum very low or something?

    My knowledge is non-existant in this.
