Hi,

I am desperate!
I am trying to install SPSS 11.5 on my computer and installation keeps
stopping after 82% and saying that a "file has failed to decompress:
insufficent memory"

I have plenty of memory in C:\

Don't know what else to do, have tried 2 installation disks both have exact
same problem!

Help!

Thanks,

C

It is talking about virtual memory not disk drive space.

Of course.
The most likely source of your problem is that your pagefile is too small so
that the virtual address space cannot be expanded. Let Windows manage the
pagefile size.

cait,
Look here for an explanation;
'Where is the page file?' (http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/xpvm.php)
