Over time with FTM 2011 running and adding citations to my tree I eventually experience memory leak issues. Below is an example:
"Exception in panel3D.Paint3D()
System.OutOfMemoryException: Out of Memory.
at System.Drawing.Graphics.DrawImage(Image image, Int32 x, Int32 y)
at FTM.UI.Common.Panel3D (Graphics)"
This then displays a "red" box around the entire FTM main window.
There are times when the display gets red "X"'s displayed where the rated stars are and the citations themselves are not fully displayed.
My machine is:
windows 7 64 bit
4 gb ram
500 GB HD with 382 GBs free
My DB has abt 25,000 with citations, pictures, census, etc.
And, yes I usually compact my file routinely.
