5304 Conventional memory exhausted
Explanation: This is an "out of memory" message that indicates that
the CA-Clipper application no longer has sufficient conventional memory
available to continue.
Specifically, this error occurs when a function attempts to allocate
conventional memory and fails. This error can be received as a result
of the failure of _xgrab() in Extend System functions.
Action: Make more conventional memory available to the VM system.
This can be done in several ways:
1. Increase the amount of conventional memory available before running
the application (by removing TSRs, making use of a 386 memory
2. Dynamically overlay C and ASM code.
3. Ensure that any C or assembly language code in use is making use of
the virtual memory system if it is doing dynamic memory allocation.
Any memory allocated using the Fixed Memory Allocator functions
(_xalloc() and _xgrab()) reduces the amount of conventional memory
available if it is not immediately freed.
