OutOfMemoryException Fix

Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

OutOfMemory exceptions are often caused by address space fragmentation in Visual Studio process. For users experiencing excessive OutOfMemory exceptions we provide a tool which overrides Visual Studio's memory allocation policy to ensure more continuous address space for Common Language Runtime.

To use the tool download wrappers.zip file, unpack it and run devenv2005_wrap, devenv2008_wrap and devenv2010_wrap instead of devenv.exe for Visual Studio 2005, 2008 and 2010 correspondingly.

In some cases Visual Studio fails to start under wrappers. Check AppInit_DLLs. Rogue DLLs activated from there can interfere with wrappers. Example: wxvault.dll preinstalled with Dell laptops.

Sometimes wrappers won't help (because it's simply not enough memory), see http://stevenharman.net/blog/archive/2008/04/29/hacking-visual-studio-to-use-more-than-2gigabytes-of-memory.aspx for other solutions and explanations.
