What build of the 1.7 betas you used?

Back when I had my system with Windows XP I frequently had that error even to end with, so it's been a known issue discussion in some 1.7 development.
Here are some general tips to reduce the occurrence of that issue in general.

i'm on .49 and its switching back and forth between

"exception caught
File: /path/to/file/project 64 1.7/Source/main.cpp
Line: 257"

and the failed to allocate memory

So by that exception I perceive the issue happens on initializing emulation?

If none of those suggestions work, try build 47 of Project64 EXE.

I also would personally test from the 1.6 version (where the memory allocation failure did not happen) and gradually check upwards the 1.7 betas to see the first build where the error happens, since this information can come in handy for the how-to for developers so that it can be fixed.

what software are you running alongside epsxe?

this allocate error was known to occur when KIS7 was used,

i'm actually running this in wine, but i remember having this problem on windows 7, and i somehow fixed it. so theres no other programs running.

oh >.> well in that case, support will end here because the minimal and recommended requirements are for a reason.

but i get the same problem on my dual boot windows 7. its not a problem with wine, other people have it working fine, and this main.cpp error keeps coming up. i actually got it to load majoras for a bit and then it crashed. its hit and miss, and i just wish someone here could look into it thats all.
