Dear Yilmaz, I suspect that your memory configuration is wrong. On my 16MB machine, I have Windows Virtual Memory (access via Control Panel--386 Enhanced) set to 9040kb. And in Mathematica under Options--Kernel I have kernel extra memory set to 7168kb. If you're doing big calculations you might want to increase the Extra Memory to a bigger value. These settings work fine for me. I've never understood how Mathematica does memory management under Windows, and if it works properly at all. Incidentally, the new version of Mma for Windows, v2.2.2, is now released. This has separate Front End and Kernel, and the MathLink programming library. You should get this free(?) upgrade from your supplier as soon as possible. It might even do memory mangement better. Regards, Phillip Kent.
