Problems using sunpc 4.1

Problems using sunpc 4.1

Post by Bernd Deffne » Tue, 15 Aug 1995 04:00:00

I have a problem using sunpc 4.1 and Microsoft Office.
When I try to run Microsoft Word or Excel I get an error message indicating
that there is not enough memory to run these applications.
But the Program Manager tells me that there are over 44 Mbyte virtual
memory and 80% of the resources available.
I run the sun PC software on a Sparc 20 with 64 Mbyte memory and 100 Mbyte
swap area. The accelerator board is installed.

Can anybody help me ?

1. Installing MS Office95 with SunPC 4.1

Has anyone had any positive experiences with this combination?  I have
encountered several problems with installing Office in SunPC.  The
error message I get is:

        Setup could not write to the file:
        Ensure that the destination drive has enough free space.

The odd thing is, each time I run SETUP, I get a different filename
that SETUP could not write to.  The files have the proper ownership
(the user account running SunPC).  Eventually, after several attempts,
Office will finally successfully install, without any errors.

I have set the memory size to the maximum of 16MB, and the C container
file is 128MB.  I am installing Office to a drive letter that was
mapped by Explorer, so it is using the 95 file name convention.

Thanks for sharing any thoughts on this...
