"Program too big to fit in memory" when installing a TFS 2010 Test Controller
Just spent a while battling a problem whilst install the TFS 2010 Test Controller. When I launched the install setup program off the .ISO I could select the Test Controller installer, but then a command prompt flashed up and exited with no obvious error. If I went into the TestControllers directory on the mounted .ISO and ran the setup from a command prompt I saw the error "program too big to fit in memory".
As the box I was trying to use only had 1Gb of memory (below the recommended minimum), I upped it to 2Gb and then to 4Gb but still got the same error.
Turns out the problem was a corrupt .ISO once I had downloaded it again, and dropped by target VM to 2Gb of memory all was fine.
