FYI the resolution to this issue was the following....
- Open your autovue.properties file (located in "<AutoVue install folder>\bin").
- Locate the line which start with "autovue.cmdline".
- Change "-Xmx512m" to "-Xmx256m".
- Save the change and test again.
This is supposed to be a Windows XP fix, but I use Windows 7 and it resolved the issue for me
XP has issues with allocating a contiguous chunk of memory and that is mandatory for the JVM to start
Delphi programs have a tendency to allocate between 100-200MB of mem when started
It has been pointed out that for the specific combination of XP and Delphi, a lower memory footprint is required.
By default, AV DD uses 512MB for the JVM, with XP it works OOB but the OCX and Delphi processes requires more memory (they use 200MB them alone) so you will need to allocate less memory to the OCX on XP
As of April 8, 2014 Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP
As stated on the previous post, you can modify the -Xmx line to use less memory, it will have an impact on performance of course, as less memory requires more data management and some medium/large 3D files will simply fail to load as it becomes impossible to manage (but that would be an expected result, no memory, no large models)
