    Code (Text):
     Operating system error: Cannot allocate memory
     Allocation would exceed memory limit
    Any thoughts about that this is and maybe any suggestions about how to resolve the issue??

    It looks like your program is trying to take more memory than your computer has, or you've got some sort of mistake in your program. Either way, it's like asking your doctor to examine you from another room while blindfolded.

    If you want more help, post your program.
