I’m using Lightroom version 3.4.1 on a Windows XP 32 bits system with 4GB Ram. And I’m getting this error during exporting (creating a jpg) a photo. Not always but after several exports. As if the memory is hogged or something. Now it is strange because on my old computer with only 2GB I never had this problem. Googling around I tried several things. Cache size, Cache on different drive, Windows paging files (Normally I have them turned off) … but nothing helped. Then I turned the Windows ‘system restore’ off (I also had this ‘off’ on my old pc), and this seems to do the trick. I haven’t seen the ‘Not enough memory’ error yet. Fingers crossed.
Edit: Nope the above trick did not solve it. The error came back. But I tried some other stuff. Having a quad core processor (AMD A8-3850) I did toy with the ‘Set Processor Affinity’ in the Windows Task Manager on the running Lightrooom.exe. Just putting 1 core active and I could export without error while on 4 cores it gave the error. So perhaps it is a multi-thread related issue. I dunno. But after finding this by accident I googled and found other ppl ‘solving’ this error in the same way. Read http://forums.adobe.com/thread/655942
Edit2: I still get the error from time to time. Now, I go out of ‘Development’ back into ‘Library’, I view a few photo’s and then back into ‘Development’. It sometimes seems to do the trick. Weird.
Edit3: Since my blogpost I have moved from XP 32 bit to Windows 7, HP 64 bit SP1 on that same AMD A8-3850 based computer and have no(!) problems anymore.
