You need to allocate more memory to Java applets

What went wrong?

If you see this message, you were probably trying to view a large panorama image. The panorama is displayed in your browser by means of PTViewer, a Java applet run inside your browser. By default, most browsers allocate only 60 to 90 MB to Java applets, which is not sufficient for large panorama images. Here is a more detailed description.

How do I fix it?

You need to increase the amount of memory allocated to Java applets. Here is how to do it:
  1. Open the Java Control Panel.
  2. Select the Java tab, then click the View... button in the Java Applet Runtime Settings. Each JRE listed (there may be several) will have a box where you can set the runtime parameters. In that box, add the text "-Xmx400m" (without the quotes) and click "OK". This allows PTViewer to claim up to 400 MB of RAM.
  3. Close the Control Panel and restart your browser.
  4. If you are using the Konqueror web browser, the "-Xmx400m" Java parameter must be set in the "Configure Konqueror" menu under the "Settings" menu. Go to "Java & Javascript" and put the parameter into the "Additional Java arguments" field.
