When I try to plot a long sheet of paper my MicroStation crashes. I used to plot this all the time and then we updated my machine and now I cant figure this out. Other people in the office can print it on the same setup of machine (version, same comp. specs, etc..) (pdf) so it is possible. This happens with all of my big plots now and I don't know what to check or what to do. All the fonts look good, no missing references, and the imagery looks great. Nothing about the file has changed but this new rebuild of my computer doesn't want to spit out a print.
If there is any other information needed I'll be happy to let you know.

You may have to do a data log or crash log for bentley to look at or some other clever user here...something isnt right

We found that in the "Help", "About", "System Info" - the "Page File Space" memory should match the amount of memory physically installed in the computer.
For some reason my "Page File Space" was set too low. Now that it is set to how much RAM that is installed as seen in the screenshot above it prints.
Thanks to everyone that read and responded!
P.S. - does anyone know what the note is about in the second screenshot? it reads "NOTE: Unable to use all of the memory in your system because current user does not have "Lock Pages in Memory" Privilege."

We use V8iSS4 and I have had similar issues with PO and not able to add any new files to list and crashing after only a few drgs processed and we have Sophos too and it popped suspicious error message too.. .but I have worked around this by
1. going back to Batchplt.ma ( its hidden so you have to key it in
2. copy the drags to my c: \temp\drgs and batch print from there seems to bother the server less and I can batch print 200 drgs no problem
but from sever and PO lucky to do 5 drgs without crash, and if I use Batchpltma on the server it doesn't run fast and can crash around 100 files processed...
This is anecdotal so I cant force the errors to happen when IT is watching.. but overall I found its the best workaround for me especially during crunch time and cant go home till its all done and submitted....
I don't know what we'll do when we are forced into CE as batchplt.ma is definitely gone in there
There's an article on how to acces more of the internal memory. It requires you to enable Lock Pages in Memory.
