Memory Leak in FMPA 14 (32 bit) on Windows 7 (64 bit)
14 Advanced 32 bit
Operating system version
Windows 7 64 bit
Description of the issue
Serious memory leak which caused FMPA 14 to bloat to over 3.2 Gb of memory used until it froze with an out of memory on Line 1 error message.
Scenario: I was doing development work - mainly layout work, and mainly involving a fairly complicated layout - over a period of hours.
Memory allocation (from Task Manager) vs time is as follows:
184Mb at 1222 after closing & reopening
1024 Mb at 1400 after a bit more layout work & lunch break
1271 Mb at 1420 after a bit more layout work
1545 Mb at 1505 after a bit more layout work
2218 Mb at 1600 - FM14 now going a bit slow
2761 Mb at 1700 hrs
2842 Mb at 1735 hrs
3208 Mb at 1805 hrs out of memory at line 1 can't even close
Subsequently, after restarting I tried leaving it idle for 12 hours - and no noticeable increase.
I also tried with and without other programs running, but that made no difference.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Do about 6 hours solid development work on a fairly complex layout (about 10 tab panels and about 9 portals), flipping between that & other layout and layout & browse mode and testing by runnning an insert file / insert picture script.
a reasonable growth in memory utilisisatio - maybe up to half a Gb
Over 3 gb until it ran out of memory
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
Out of Memory at line:1
(I actually thought it originally said Out of Memory at line:571, but by the time I'd fired the snipping tool (about 3 seconds) it showed:
"Out of Memory at line:1"
I used the 32 bit version of FM 14 as I'd had a problem with a previous install of 64 bit.
I had also heard of others having problems with the 64 bit version of FMP14
Can only restart it. afaik.
