Counter Strike - Fatal error "available memory less than 15 MB"

August 2016



Issue


When I try to run Counter Strike 1.6, the following error message is displayed
" Available memory less than 15 MB"
.

Solution


This may happen when you try to run Counter Strike on 64-bit OS. To solve this issue, simply:
  • Right click on the game shortcut, choose Properties, Compability,
  • Check "Run this program in Compability mode for": choose Windows XP SP2.
