Solution 1

The compiler simply doesn't haver enough memory to compile the project. This can have several reasons but the main solution is to provide more memory.
Did you disable/limit virtual memory (My Computer -> Manage -> Advanced System Settings -> Tab:Advanced -> Performance -> Tab: Advanced -> Virtual memory.
Be sure to have enough space free on the disk used by the swap file.

Have a look here (for vs6.0 but still applies)[^]

Good luck!

Thanks for Response
My computer configuration are 3GB RAM, 250GB HD, in C drive 8 GB free space with C2D Processor with 1.8GHz. At the time i run only one application. I think its enough to compile.

It might be time for you to get a bigger or 2nd hard drive. You'd think 8GB open would be plenty, but swap drives and virtual memory can eat that up in a heartbeat.

I added a link to my answer. Also, do you combine multiple classes in a single source file? Also, use generics (class templates) can demand a lot of memory. Try split up your sources in chunks that are more manageable.

Good luck!
