Problems loading large models into WaterGEMS or HAMMER for ArcMap

Product(s): WaterGEMS, Hammer, SewerGEMS
Version(s): 08.11.XX.XX, 10.XX.XX.XX
Area: General


Problems loading large models into WaterGEMS, SewerGEMS or HAMMER for ArcMap, ArcGIS hangs when trying to work with / open a very large WaterGEMS, SewerGEMS or HAMMER model.

Problem ID#: 51734


Try increasing the JET lock/creation setting in ArcMap.:

1) Go to the Utilities directory of ArcMap. For example, in ArcGIS 10.5 it might be: C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.5\Utilities

2) Run AdvancedArcMapSettings.exe

3) On the "Editor" tab, raise the value of "JET engine max # of records to calculate:". Make it somewhere in the neighborhood of 600000-2000000, which should cover any WaterGEMS use-case.

4) Click Apply > Close and try again.
