Error allocating memory with shell protection and Salford compilers

Rate It:
If your shell protected program displays a message box stating it was unable to allocate a large amount of memory immediately after completing the protection check, this could be due to using an old version of a library.

Specifically some versions of the salflibc.dll (we know the version dates 08-Dec-2000 displays this behaviour) which is part of the runtime for various development languages produced by Salford Software would attempt to reserve 320MB of RAM at a fixed address and refuse to start the program if it is unable to do so.

Testing suggests that newer versions of this DLL do not exhibit the same problem.
