vb6 ide try to add class get out of memory error

Hi I have tried this on several machines and rebooted several time. I have also ensured that the all patches and (including vb6 ones, sp6) are update to date on the machine.

The problem is this, we have a huge legacy system written in vb6 (i think it was intially written in vb3!).
It has 125 forms, 7 modules, 487 classes, 90 controls !!

We need to add another class to the project.  When we try to do this we get an 'out of memory; error.
If we remove a class, form or a control already in the project then we can add the class we want. But afterwards we cannot add anything  else. It seems we have hit a max limit of forms/classes/controls for one project. We could break the project down into DLLs etc but a) no time b) no budget. Has anyone got a workaround or heard of this before?

Many thanks!

This problem proves size is not everything!
