I am using Borland BDS 2006.  As I am working within the IDE, I keep getting the out of memory error am forced to shut down Delphi.  I went to Borland's site and downloaded the patches and updates.  I was happy to know that hotfix #9 addressed a memory leak in the IDE but after installing the updates, I still have the issue of the memory creeping up until I have none left.  I have to shut down at least 4 times a day and have lost code because of the issue.  At first, I thought it might be the application I was building because it is a big program but the problem can occur on other very simple programs also. Has others encountered the problem and is there a solution?

Have you tried to disable together stuff?

most of memory leaks in the IDE came from together, disable it and will see less problems

also disable some features like error insight and toolhelp insight

Thanks for your help.  I did disable Together it initially reduced the growth of the memory leak but it still did not stop the explosion past my system memory threshold.  I then stopped the code complete, expression evaluation and error insight. The IDE stabilized memory usage around 135 mb.  I added the code complete and the expression evaluation and the system still stabilized arounf 135 mb.  If I turn on the error insight the memory start creepying up again.  So I will just not use it.
