Memory problems with 2007

Post by voodoochil » Tue, 06 Mar 2007 01:03:08


I am having problems when I try to call a model into assembly. The program
comes up with a no available memory error. I never had this problem with
2006 especially with such a small part (its only a 52 step model).

Is there a way I can free up more memory for the program?

How much memory is in your system?

What are the rest of your system specs. CPU, Video Card....

1) Have you cleaned out temp lately?
2) Do you have your swap file set to 4GB for both min and max?

1) YES I clean it out often
2) Is this the recommended size of swap file?

One gig should be enough, though on the low end. SolidWorks seems to
work much better with 2 gigs of memory. We have had 2 gigs in all of
our engineering computers for several years now. It appears to me
that SW 2007 demands a bit more out of the computer hardware then
previous version of SolidWorks.

What are the rest of your computer specs? Details. details..... CPU
model and speed, what specific video card do you have? Is it a new
computer or a few years old? I am assuming you are running Windows XP
SP2, do you have the 3Gb switch set in the boot.ini file.

What kind of assembly are you trying to bring this part into. How big
and complex?

What else are you running besides SolidWorks? If you turn off
everything other program you typically run and just run SolidWorks do
you still get an out of memory error?

Can you bring this same part into other similar assemblies?

Another couple questions....

Do you have your computer set to Adjust For Best Performance? RMB on
My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Performance Settings > Adjust
for best performance.

Also RMB anywhere not on a shortcut on your screen and set your
Windows Theme in Properties to Windows Classic.

All the Windows eye candy consumes system resources.

2 gigs of memory on your computer is going to give you a much better
experience in SolidWorks. That is the minimum RAM required on a
workstation these days, in my opinion. We spec our regular office
pc's with a gig of RAM. I also expect that we will be spec'ing all
new workstations with 4 gig minimum of RAM the next go round in about
a year for engineering workstations.

Set it to 4GB and use the 3GB switch. Check the NG for the howto on
that.

Hi

Are you on sp2.2, I think there were some memory issues with 2007
sp0.0
and Photoworks, try turning it off.
