I now think its a memory problem, too.
My computer is running Win2000, 256 MB of RAM, virtual memory is fixed
to 400 MB.
I started the Windows Task manager to watch memory usage:
- without any programs running (except virus scanner, ..) its 119 MB
- After starting Artemis it goes up to 412 MB
- Athena won't run
Then I set the virtual memory to fixed 600 MB.
- After starting Artemis it again takes ~400 MB
- Athena now starts! Memory usage is ~700 MB.
But shutting down one program before starting the other has been OK for
