Hi,

 

just to make sure: what operating system do you have (especially 32bit or 64bit)?

And what objects do you have in your drawing? Are there large images or large DWGs referenced or complex 3D-solids? So how big are the drawings you have and what type of drawings are these?

 

One additional question: what does your task-manager tell you, how much memory is used by the ACAD.EXE when this message pops up?

Hello

 

If you are running a Windows 64 bits with 8 Gb Ram on your PC and an AutoCAD 64 bits,

the size (in memory) of your "ACAD.exe" can increase up to about 7 Gb ...

 

So please check it with the task manager !?

 

Bye, Patrice

Hi,

 

>> Im using windows 7pro 32bit.

Sorry, you have more than 4GB built in that can't be used (as it's not addressable with 32bit os), change to Win7 64bit, otherwise only (about) 3GB is usable from OS and only 2GB is usable then from AutoCAD.

Hello

 

Aie, Aie, you MUST use Win Seven 64 bits (not WIn 8) !

 

The task "ACAD.exe" 32 bits can't use more than about 1.3 Gb memory on ANY 32 bits Windows !!

It's a historical limit of the 32 bits "ACAD.exe" 200x-201x ...

 

Bye, Patrice
