Fatal Error when plotting DWFs with VBA program

We have created a VBA program that opens a series of drawings and plots various layouts to DWF files. The PC has 1GB RAM and we have 2GB vitual memory set. As the program runs, each drawing opened pushes the RAM used up, even though we close each drawing after plotting its layouts. When we get to approx. 1.8GB of memory used, we get a "FATAL ERROR: Out of memory - shutting down" message and AutoCAD closes. It seems that each time you create a DWF, memory is used that doesn't get released. We want to batch plot many more drawings than we are able to now before we get the fatal error. Any Ideas? JPG shows task manager performance tab when fatal error occurs.

Jay,

 

I will forward this along to the AutoCAD QA team
and see if they can get an idea of what this may be.
