Illustrator CS3 .. ran out of memory..

  1. Default Illustrator CS3 .. ran out of memory..

    Hi,
    I've a problem with my Illustrator CS3. I've an about 400MB big *.ai-file which I want to export as an *.esp.

    But when I try to export the following message appears:

    Header: VersionCueUI.DLL
    Message: The application ran out of virtual memory.
    Please close some windows to free memory.

    Illustrator is the only running programm.

    The problem is a kind of strange cause I exported the same file yesterday without any problems. I just deleted a few images out of the file. So it's also a bit smaller then yesterday.

    Technical details:
    Windows XP Professional 32 Bit
    2 GB RAM

    I hope anyone can help me

    Thanks in advance and greets from Germany

    Christoph

    Check the amount of space you have left on your scratch disk. It's probably full or nearly full.

  3. Default Re: Illustrator CS3 .. ran out of memory..

    I've 320 GB left on the drive I save the file to

  4. Default Re: Illustrator CS3 .. ran out of memory..

    It's not the drive you save the file to that's the problem. It's the drive you have set as your scratch disk.

    I selected this drive as scratch disk.
    On my system drive I've 10GB left.

    thx

    Not according to the error message: "The application ran out of virtual memory. Please close some windows to free memory."

    I would take that error message to be accurate and increase Windows virtual memory (aka page file).

    I allready increased the page file to 4096MB (thats the maximum)

    I also have a user who has this same problem when trying to save a file, I have also increased the Virtual Memory to its maximum but it doesn't seem to have resolved the issue.
    The machine is not actually using 100% of physical memory when trying to save the file, is this possibly a bug?

    ...is this possibly a bug?




    Yes.

    "4096 (thats the maximum)"
    No, 4096 is not the maximum in Windows XP Pro (or Home). I have three 'puters here on XP Pro with 2GB RAM each, and all three have been running with page file size 6144GB quite successfully. Just to verify that there is no "maximum" other than the capacity of the Page Drive, I'm running this computer right now with 1TB page file size.

    Regardless, I have had success solving this particular problem by simply rebooting the computer, and then exporting.
