if this is a windows problem then why doesnt windows crash?
and if this is a flash problem, could it my the dynamic memory allocation algorythm?
I personally don't know enough about how windows works to explain it or make any sense of it. I suspect part of the problem is caused by the Borland Delphi VCL works, it is responsible for creating the windows/controls you see. I don't know how windows determines it's low on resources. Only that this type of error usually occurs when there is none left.

All sub windows in FlashFXP are created when shown, not on startup, otherwise it would have a huge memory foot print.

I don't have much experience with windows xp so maybe it could be something else, but I don't know what that could be.

What I do know is that atlest a dozen people are using FlashFXP on windows xp without this type of error.
