Searched internet everywhere; no one seems to have solved it. I'll try again.
While trying to place a 3.8 MB PSD file into my open 10.9 MB Ai file, I recieve this prompt:
The application ran out of virtual memory. Please close some windows to free memory." (with Retry and Cancel buttons)
Windows Vista Home Premium
HP HDX16 Notebook PC
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P7550 @ 2.26 GHz 2.27 GHz
RAM: 4.00 GB
64-bit Operating System
have about 329 GB free of 455 GB on C:
have about 1.72 GB free of 9.85 GB on RECOVERY D:
have about 458 GB free of 465 GB on FreeAgent (External) Drive F:
What I tried:
-all variations of customizing initial and maximum paging file size
-all variations of changing Ai's preferences for primary and secondary scratch disks (and restarting Ai & or CPU)
-closing all other applications
-deleting browsing history and cookies
-doing "open disk clean-up for all users " (only one user -myself)
-I was able to place the file (as an embedded file; "link" was unchecked) with these settings:
-Virtual Memory: checkmarked "automatically manage paging file size for all drives"
Which meant total paging file size for all drives:
-Min 16 MB
-Recommended 6138 MB
-Currently allocated 4392 MB
-Ai Preferences for Scratch Discs
-I was then able to work with the placed image as an embedded file:
-I created a symbol from it, and added the symbol to the symbols panel
-I deleted the placed image from the Ai file
-I mapped the symbol to a 3D object (using the 3D Revolve Options "Map Art" function)
-however, when I select "Shade Artwork" on the 3D object...
-the symbol artwork disappears from the 3D object; it reappears when "Shade Artwork" is unselected.
-So I tried placing another PSD image (14.6 MB), to see if this would not "disappear" like the other
-I got the same error message ("...application ran out of virtual memory...") again!
-So I tried placing the original PSD image (3.8 MB) again
-I still got the same error message
-I tried resetting the settings that seemed to work, as well as the other things that did not seem to work:
-Still getting same error message.
So, if you could help me out, I'd appreciate it!!!!!
