we got virtual clients, 4 GB Ram, Win 8.1
we've been working for a long time with FM14 Adv, it will take double RAM compared to FM11. Now, we got FM15 Adv, that will take a little something more...
But: We did not have problems like this, there were a lot of complaints because of the terrible slowliness when in debugger and having dataviewer and some scriptwirkspace windows open - but it did not crash
(thats the same with FM15, sigh..)
FM14 took more than 2GB of RAM (about the same as on Your machine). We been running FM11 at the same time, Acrobat, Excel, Outlook - was ok
Oh! But in mine if i open Outlook + FMP, then my PC get hang(even for this two also / anyother combo with FMP)..
Memory usage 75+ & Disk Usage 80+ in the Task Manager!
