Re: Vista, IE7 , can have multiple windows open?
I had a look to your HEAP reference. It is perhaps the source of the
problem, but it is not easy to understand.
What I did observed on my VAIO/VISTA/IE7 2GB Memory:
- After reaching the 1 Gb in memory used, all VISTA is not responding to
new request (process manager doesn't display any process, TaskMgr
does mix different screens, IE7 doesn't allow new windows to be opened,
.... until you close previous ones !!
- Maximum memory usage displayed is about 1.07 GB
- When I close some of IE7/other programs, I am able to open new programs
(and this time the memory has no limit of 1GB)
Hope it will help you in identifying the error encountered by CLESTER2
On my side, I don't open anymore my Vista computer, and only use the
XP one :-( which works better with 512 Mb than my vista with 2 GB ...
Everybody could try this: open up to 15 IE7 (24 on some other computers)
After a while, you only have blank pages, right click doesn't work any more,
and taskmgr does mix its 5 different screens when you tab on it.
In the same way, network could be "stopped", ie does not respond any more.
The only solution is to close some of the opened windows, then
everything is working fine again.
Vista seems to be for expert developers only. It took me 5 minutes to
have this problem on my new vista computer. Now I don't use it anymore
because I don't want to be working on windows bugs during hours, just
to display a PNG image, or be able to navigate in more than 10 windows.
