If you are using 32-bit DLL, I'm afraid the process cannot allocate continues chunk of memory large enough to keep required images for OCR, as the 32-bit processes has limited address space and that space often become fragmented, so, even if most of the address space is free, there are no continues block of memory.

As a solution I can see switching to 64-bit DLLs, if possible, or try to reduce quality/DPI used for OCR documents.

When attaching files to any message - please ensure they are archived and posted as a .ZIP, .RAR or .7z format - or they will not be posted - thanks.

Switching to 64 is not that simple.

Another option is to implement better memory handling in your code...

Hi Tom,

we are always working on improving our code. Given the declining use of 32 bit systems and the 64 bit solution presented, we would consider this is a rather low priority "issue" I'm afraid.

I do not expect to see the 32 bit code "improved" in any practical time frame for your purposes, if at all.

I do apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.
