Manage big applications

I have a problem with one of my VB applications.This application has 40-50 forms, modules, and reports. My PC is configured with Windows 98, Pentium II 300 MhZ, and 128MB of RAM. When I develop and debug my application, I run out of system resources. What’s going on?

If you can’t reduce the number of forms in your application, you may want to consider using Microsoft Windowless Controls (MSWLESS.OCX) that shipped with VB6. These controls do not have window handles and therefore conserve memory.

Another alternative…
Use a DHTML application, create your forms in HTML, and store them in a database. Then you can use one DIV tag to display different forms stored in the database.
