I have been working in a company for the last 4 years that develop a large vb6 app. For 3 of those years, we have been expierencing "Out of Memory" issues.
This manifests itself as an Out of Memory error when compiling.
As I said it is a fairly large vb6 app. We're talking over 500 Forms, Modules and classes. The .exe it creates is > 11MB. If it goes any larger than this (by adding new functionality forms, clasess or otherwise), it throws the out of memory
The way we've been dealing with this to date, is by moving parts of the system into a seperate module which would be run by a DDE call to this exe. Obviously this is not ideal..a bit like rearranging the deckchairs on the titanic. We have streamlined our code and have removed all dead variables and functions.
Has anyone expierenced this themselves? Is the only solution not to add more functionality i.e. have we reached the limit size of a vb app?
Any input would be most welcome.
