Issue Details

I am trying to build an application from a LabVIEW project, but I get a Memory is full or the following error message during the build process:

 Not enough memory to complete this operation.


The error occurs when the LabVIEW compiler run out of memory, especially when it tries to compile large or complex VIs. There are several method that could potentially resolve the issue:

Additional Information

On a 64-bit Windows operating system, LabVIEW (32-bit) can access up to 4 GB of virtual memory without modification. LabVIEW (64-bit) can use up to 16 TB of virtual memory on Windows Vista (64-bit), Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows 8 (64-bit) and Windows 10 (64-bit). However, if using LabVIEW 64-bit, the LabVIEW 64-bit Run Time is required on the deployment end and there are some toolkits not available on 64-bit LabVIEW. More information about specifics of which modules and toolkits are compatible with which bitness of LabVIEW is available in the LabVIEW 32-Bit vs. 64-Bit Development Environments FAQ.
