Checking swap space: 0 MB available

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...
Checking installer requirements...
Checking operating system version: must be 5.0, 5.1 or 5.2 . Actual 5.1 Passed
Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors . Actual
4294967296 Passed
Checking swap space: 0 MB available, 512 MB required. Failed <<<<
Some requirement checks failed. You must fulfill these requirements before
continuing with the installation, at which time they will be rechecked.
Continue? (y/n) [n]

Scenario:
I received the above error when I am trying to install the 10.1.3.1.0 version of BPEL Process Manager.
I do not see problem with the space available[o MB available!].I believe it has more to do with the installer logic.

Among the tasks, click on Adjust Visual effects
In the Performance Options window, click on the Advanced tab
then click on change for the virtual memory
check "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives"
