Hi Everyone,
While developing a WINDOWS application using  VS 2005.
 
 I am getting too often the following error to the point that is getting very difficult to work with this, as we have to kick out VS and re-start it to get that going.
 
Error 4 Unable to write to output file 'C:\apps\CI_net\Code\CI\obj\Debug\CI.exe': Not enough storage is available to complete this operation. 	
 
Some environment specs:
 
 
Running on Windows XP pro 
Machine with 4 GB RAM
140 GB Free disk Space
When this happens I check how much memory is been used and is only 1.5 GIG,
other developers are experiencing the same error on different types of machines but similar specs.
 
Additionally I am using Developer Express controls version 9.15 
 
Any help will be appreciated.
 
TIA

Follow the steps

   1. Backup the boot.ini file. Then, put the /3GB switch in your boot.ini For more information on the /3GB option, please check the following article: Memory Support and Windows Operating Systems: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/platform/server/PAE/PAEmem.mspx
   2. Make DEVENV large address aware.
         1. Open up a VS 2005 command prompt
         2. Change directory to the Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE directory.
         3. Backup devenv.exe file.
         4. Type and execute the following command line: "editbin /LARGEADDRESSAWARE devenv.exe"
   3. Reboot Windows and Build.
