Hitman: Absolution

Hitman: Absolution

View Stats:
Out of memory error is fixed... with extremely simple procedure.
This damn annoying out of memory error.. I am so sick of seeing it on every damn time it loads in-game movie. However, this crap is solved with EXTREMELY simple change on my end, and now game runs without errors which is very surprising.

Go to your steam folder and find the hitman absolution folder
(for 64bits, C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Hitman Absolution)
there is HMA executable, you make that thing run as administrator (property -> compatibility -> previlege level -> check on Run this program as an administrator)

And that's it... it's so simple fix that worked on my end. It's so simple that i feel even stupid explaining to you guys since you guys probably know how to change that... However, you might overlook to try this because it's so damn simple. Try it and see if it works.

Mine's i7 2600k
RAM 8GB
Windows 7 Ultimate with newest updates
GTX 580 SLi with 310.61 beta driver.

*edit : try this for OTHER DirectX error you encounter, it might just fix it as well.

I simply cannot thank you enough! I created a profile after 15 years on steam just to post that this in fact is working for me as well, where I was crashing at the end of every cutscene to the out of memory error box with a brand new Asus GTX-690 4GB that has been swimmingly brilliant on my i7 980x @3.33 w 12GB running anything and everything else in the last 2 months. Even with the beta 310.61 drivers I could only get the game engine to fire from the lead in scene about every third try--I shelved it through the holiday, watching the forums and trying anything and everything suggested with no result but this little trick has worked thus far and I am greatful for your sharing! Yes, it was simple--but something I'd never come up with on my own. Perhaps now I can get back into the story...much thanks!
Bump to make sure people see while they are awake.

Hello there,
I have the same problem with virtual memory. I did exactly the steps you indicated, and although it worked fine for a while, now i get the same flicks when i move the mouse quickly. Any more ideas on how to fix that?

It's been a while since the release so I don't remember crystal clear, but I think that was the message.

Thanks for sharing your suggested workaround, but it did not work of course. These problems are completely unrelated so it was probably something else that fixed it for you.

Not necessarily. This post was done long time ago... so I don't remember quite clear, but there were reports that not applying administrator level privilege on executable on PC that have certain level of active UAC enabled known to cause game to not utilize the memory correctly. It was probably when absolution was in initial version, I don't know what dev fixed (or broken) in their patch since then. This fixed for good numbers of people. If this didn't fix it for you, you probably have other problem on your end or the game.
and where is hitman absolution?
