Not enough storage is available to process this command

"Not enough storage" does not refer to hard disk storage.  It refers to the amount of memory that Windows allocates from whats called the "heap".  By default, Windows does not allocate enough memory from the shared heap for some of Uluro's background (noninteractive) processes so this needs to be increased.


You increase the size of the noninteractive desktop heap by editing the SharedSection parameter string in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\SubSystems registry subkey. The SharedSection parameter string is located in the Windows registry value and uses the following format to specify heap size:

  • xxxx specifies the maximum size of the system-wide heap (in kilobytes)
  • yyyy specifies the size of each desktop heap
  • zzzz specifies the size of the desktop heap that is associated with a noninteractive Windows instance
