Tips and Techniques

Out of Available Memory error running Application Engine

By Larry Grey • February 15, 2009


When you run an Application Engine program from within Application Designer (as we mentioned in our blog post on Application Engine Development Tips) and turn on the checkbox for sending output to a log file, it always defaults to sending the output to c:temp.

If you don’t have a c:temp directory though, you’ll end up getting the “Out of Available Memory” error message.

This problem doesn’t occur when running Application Engine via the process scheduler because the process scheduler has already arranged the output directories appropriately (so that each process instance’s output can be tied to the instance number).

It should default the output directory to %TEMP% and just expand that at runtime, but until it does, then the best thing to is just create a c:temp directory so that you don’t have to keep changing it all the time.
