    Apparently this is a common problem involving virtual memory (swap file). Your system specs are fine.

    First, uninstall PhotoDeluxe and reboot.

    Go to Control Panel > System > Advanced tab > Performance ‘Settings’ button > Advanced tab > Virtual Memory ‘Change’ button.

    Make a note of the current Initial and Max settings, in case this doesn’t work and you want to revert.

    Select ‘Custom Size’ and set Initial to 4000 and Maximum to 4095. Click the ‘Set’ button, and then OK out of this window, close down all programs and reboot.

    Reinstall PhotoDeluxe.

    This fixes a problem with the program where it needs a certain size for the swap file. From what I can tell, this size is a multiple which depends on the amount of RAM you’ve got, so you may need to experiment with the Initial setting (one site said it should be 3072, others give higher figures). Remember to reboot after changing this to activate it.
