“Memory Insufficient. IME will not work”

Today I stum­bled across this error while doing a Win­dows XP rein­stall. This occurs when I switch to the Boshi­amy IME. That wasn’t par­tic­u­larly prob­lem­atic because I was still able to actu­ally use the IME to type words, but I had to man­u­ally click on the OK button to the error mes­sage every time I switch input lan­guage. To my sur­prise a Google revealed 0 related pages for this error mes­sage. After some fum­bling around, I solved the problem.

All I had to do was to do a

sudo intl.cpl

And add my IME there with ele­vated priv­i­leges. The sudo pack­age I used was sudowin.

Edit: It turns out that I didn’t have to add the IME with ele­vated priv­i­leges, but rather, I must start the IME in an appli­ca­tion with ele­vated priv­i­leges once. After that it will be OK for good.
