It worked for me if I left out "--edit" from Jim Butler's comment on Sun 26 Feb 2012. Otherwise I had the same problem as Anonymous on Wed 16 Jan

I have tried --heap 512 with no success. Running Windows 7 on Dell XPS14z with 8Gb RAM. Tried 9.1.1 and 9.0 and get the same result.
Most grateful for any advice on how to get this going.

I had this problem with Scheme 9.0.1 and 9.1.1 running on 64-bit Win7, but with some experimentation I was able to get Scheme 9.0.1 to start with a heap size of 512 (1024 was too large):

"C:\Program Files (x86)\MIT-GNU Scheme\bin\mit-scheme.exe" --library "C:\Program Files (x86)\MIT-GNU Scheme\lib" --edit --heap 512

By the way, the PC has 8 GB of RAM.

This message means that Scheme is unable to allocate the amount of memory it wants. Try starting it with a smaller --heap value (see the user's manual). IIRC the default for --heap is 4096.

I received the infamous "Requested allocation is too large" error message after installing mit-scheme-9.0.1-i386.tar.gz on a Dell Latitude D830 running Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS and Emperor Linux's kernel 2.6.33.3.emp4 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 22 08:56:49 EDT 2010 i686 GNU/Linux. The md5 check sum matches.

I see that this was a problem with earlier version of MIT Scheme (see, for example, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mit-scheme/+bug/217792).
