Out of Memory Error

May 24, 2012 10:09 PM

Tags: #error #dreamweaver #cs6 #restart #out_of_memory

After a few minutes of usage, Dreamweaver CS6 will refuse to do something (out of memory error) and need to be restarted. I talked with Adobe on the phone and they had me delete the preferences file - that solved some OTHER issues, however I'm still getting the out of memory error every so often. I can upload files about 3-15 times, and then I'll start getting the error. I'm not even close to using my computer's full system resources, so it's something in dreamweaver. See attached image for one instance

    How much RAM do you have?  What are your system specs?

    Sorry, no.  Your specs seem to be more than adequate when compared to the requirements specified here -

    I suggest you contact Adobe Customer Support for more help with this.

    I have the exact same issue with Dreamweaver CS6 running out of memory Ram 8Gb, Windows 7, 1TB harddrive, Core i5 2.5Ghz, 64bit . I need to reopen dreamweaver quite open to fix it.

    Any ideas Adobe?

    If you want a response from Adobe you must contact them directly.

    Just curious but the "Ask the Experts" link directs me back here. The issue is a bug that just needs to be logged.

    Thanks

    I get this error.

    I tried the hotfix. It did nothing.

     

    This error needs to go away. I makes dreamweaver near unusable.

    I have 8 gigs. It is not a ram issue.

    I'm runngin Windows 8 and after a number of uploads or after a number of searches I get the "OUT OF MEMORY" errors.  The only correction is to quit the program and reload it. 
    If I"m working with multiple files and such I end up losing all my UNDO chains.. which sucks cuz sometime I change my mind and need to go back.

     

    CS6 works under Windows 8 but clearly not very well with these constant problems.

     

    Is there a real fix?  I dont think the suggested hotfix applies to Windows 8.

    Hey @eriteric ... That's not really an option for me.  I like the css hinting and some of the other aspects of CS6.  I didn't have the problem in Windows 7..  I am dual booting Win 7 and Win 8 and maybe its time to go back to Windows 7.

    The reality of things is that there should have been a patch by now.  There's other PHP editors out there, but none as good as DW in my opinion.

    I've had this issue for a long time, even with different versions. I have searched off and on to find the solution, but most of the answers are either crazy made up shots in the dark, or tell you to buy more memory.


    Finally found the answer, and hope this helps someone with the same issue and lack of answers. It's pretty simple: Dreamweaver chokes on huge files, and those files are usually error_log. One of mine was a whopper (almost 4 gigs), and after I deleted it, I no longer have to cuss and reboot nearly every time I search with Dreamweaver.
