I placed them in the c:\WinAPRS directory where it says they should go.

  Show us the complete path you have for those 2 files.  That may help
troubleshoot what's wrong.  I suspect it's where you placed those files.

  Well I am not sure what is happening but my WinAPRS installation does not
seem to find the config.txt or memory.txt file I created in the WinAPRS
directory because I get the Out of memory message after the station list
gets to 4096 when I have STATIONS in the config file set to 16384.

  Any ideas on what to try next?

            It's been a while since I ran WinAPRS, but I have a file in my
WinAPRS folder called "memory.txt" and it contains the following:

    STATIONS        16382
    MESSAGES        16382
    PKTBUFFER       2000192

            I'm not really sure these are valid settings, but you might give
them a try.

            I was able to find the following in the WinAPRS documentation:

    memory.txt or config.txt
    Either file name can be used. It will look for config.txt first, then
look for memory.txt. Only one will be read. Since users need to be able to
configure the amount of memory being allocated for station lists etc, before
the program is launched and even if they are not registered, a separate
config file is set up for this purpose. It is memory.txt. It must be located
in the same directory as the WinAPRS.exe application. It can contain the
following commands. Use a single TAB to separate the command and the

      a.. STATIONS n - this tells it how many stations to allocate
      b.. MESSAGES n - this tells it how many messages to allocate
      c.. PKTBUFFER n - how much memory to allocate for the packet buffer
(8192 minimum)
      d.. DESTROYICONS YES/NO - this is for WinAPRS ONLY and is to help
debug memory problems.
      e.. Version 2.4.0 and 2.4.1 did not destroy icons, version 2.4.2 did.
This will allow users to change the setting so that we can figure out what
works and what does not.
    If the memory.txt file is not present, it will default to the normal
station counts that it did in version 2.4.2.
