  • Hi,

    When you attempt to Save or print or print preview images that are larger than approximately 2500 pixels or they span more than two pages, you may receive one of the following error messages:
    Out of memory.

    -OR-

     if Your system is running low on virtual memory. Please close some applications. You can then start the System option in the Control Panel and choose the Virtual Memory button to create an additional paging file or to increase the size of your current paging file.

    CAUSE

    FrontPage was not designed to print or print preview images that are wider than 2500 pixels.

    STATUS

    Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.

    MORE INFORMATION

    To work around this issue, make sure your images are less than 2500 pixels wide.

    Steps to Reproduce Problem
    --------------------------

    1. Create a new page in Page view.
    2. Insert a Clip Art image.
    3. In the Image Properties dialog box, set the width to 2730 pixels, maintaining the aspect ratio.
    4. On the File menu, click Print Preview . Result: After a long wait, you receive an Out of Memory message, and then FrontPage closes.

    VBScript Compilation Error

     

    When you preview code written in Visual Basic Script in a browser, the following error message appears:

    Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a03e9' Out of Memory

    CAUSE

    VBScript has a maximum static string limit of 1,022 characters, and this error appears any time a line of code exceeds 1,022 characters.

    RESOLUTION

    Most of the time, the line of code in error is the SQL statement since SELECT statements can be very large. You can use one of the following to work around this problem:

    If the SELECT goes against a single table, remove the "table." prefix in front of each column.

    Create a variable to hold the SELECT statement, and concatenate the SQL over several lines as follows:

    MySQL = "SELECT table.col1, table.col2 " MySQL = MySQL & "FROM table " MySQL = MySQL & "Where x = 3"

    If the number of columns are relatively small, but the SELECT statement selects from multiple tables, create a view. Select against the view, omitting the "table." prefix in front of the columns.

    For non-SQL lines of code that are too large, you can use the second workaround listed previously.

    Out
    of Memory Errors if FrontPage Stops Responding When Opening Web

     

    When you attempt to open a Web, the computer's hard disk drive runs continuously, and the Web does not open. FrontPage stops responding (hangs) or you receive one of the following error messages:

     

    Out of memory.

    -or-

    Ran out of memory attempting to allocate 0 bytes.


    CAUSE

    This behavior is caused by a damaged Web server extensions cache file, which causes all available hard disk space to be consumed by the swap file.

    RESOLUTION

    To correct this problem and open the Web in FrontPage, rename or delete the Web server extensions cache file for the Web. To do this, follow these steps.

    NOTE : Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.

    1.

    Start Windows Explorer.

    2.

    On the Tools menu, click Folder Options .

    3.

    Click the View tab.

    4.

    Under Hidden files and folders, click Show all files .

    5.

    Click to clear the Hide file extensions for known file types check box.

    6.

    Click OK and close Windows Explorer.

    7.

    On the Windows Start menu, click Find Files .

    8.

    Search all hard disks for *.web files. (These files should be located in the Application Data\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache folder.)

    9.

    Rename or delete the *.web files that match the name of the Web that you want to open.

     thanks

  • Anil, hi!

    Your proposed solution with deleting cached *.web file does not help.

    Must be some Windows 7 issue :(.

  • Hello, I am experiencing the same thing.  I dowloaded an Office 2003 security update and that helped for about 10 pages but now I am experiencing the same problem again!!!

    Is Microsoft going to do anything about this to help us? We are using their products and they are not performing!!!!

    So frustrating!  Any help would be great...and just to clear up this is for trying to SAVE a page...not OPEN a page!
