The causes of the error message and possible solutions:

  • Faulty program code. Signal the error to the application's developer, and try installing a newer version.
  • It's possible that there isn't enough memory available for the application. Free up memory be temporarily stopping some applications or services.
  • It's possible that a hardware component of your computer is malfunctioning. Have the hardware components of your computer checked, with special attention to the RAM modules.
