    Windows XP, SP1, Netvista with 384meg ram

    When attempting to print a *.pdf file, I receive an error 'Not enough free
    memory to perform this operation.' The printer then prints blank sheets
    equaling the quantity in the file.

    *.pdf file size doesn't matter - tried 18K to 2.0 meg - same error.Nothing
    else is open. System shows over 300 meg ram available.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    driver, so when viewing the file, choose this driver instead of your
    regular printer. (Not sure how that would work if Adobe is already

    You may want to try a separate reader and print from there. This one is
    free, and won't muck with your Adobe settings, so long as you don't tell
    it to be your default .pdf reader.
    Hmm. I find it a bit hard to figure that an XP computer with 384MB ram,
    while running Adobe, would have 300MB free. XP itself should be
    consuming at least half of your ram.
