Vectorworks 2008 seems slow. Is this memory related? in General Discussion Posted March 6, 2008 Katie, I'm having this same problem with VW 12.5. I'm using Windows XP Pro with 1Gb of ram and ATI graphics. Not on a network. I'm working with relatively small files - 4 to 18 Mb, and I'm not trying any complex rendering or lighting. After VW has been runing for a while it gets slower and slower. Opening the task manager shows the memory commit charge getting very large. As it approaches the total available ram, the hardrive runs longer until the program either hangs or crashes. I've also noticed that if I manage to close the file before it crashes, task manger still show VW processor usage hovering around 30% - just sitting idle with no files open. This problem occurs whether I'm running other applications or not. There is no particular function or sequence of operations that causes it. Just the fact that VW has been running for awhile. How long depends on file size. This is very similar to a memory leak problem that I had with another progam several years ago. I see that the last post to this thread was in October. Is there a solution yet? The original post for this thread was from a VW 2008 user, but I hope you are able to fix the problem for 12.5 also. I never had this issue with previous versions.
