Portal Installation

Hello all,

I am trying to install EP on my laptop so that I can learn the system. I only have 2 gigs of ram on my laptop and that is causing a problem. When the system tries to start up it runs out of memory and shuts down. I know this is happening based on a developer trace of the J2ee server process:

<i>Error occurred during initialization of VM

Could not reserve enough space for object heap

[Thr 1420] JLaunchIAbortJava: abort hook is called

[Thr 1420] **********************************************************************

      • ERROR => The Java VM aborted unexpectedly.

      • Please see SAP Note 943602 , section 'Java VM crashes'

      • for additional information and trouble shooting.


[Thr 1420] JLaunchCloseProgram: good bye (exitcode = -2)</i>

My question is, has anyone installed EP on a laptop before with the same memory constraints that I have. And, is it possible to dedicate more memory to the Java VM? I've already tried maxing out the virtual memory and that doesn't seem to make a difference, unless perhaps I was doing it wrong.
