Microsoft released a patch for the “Cut/Copy Insufficient Memory issue with Visual Studio 2010”. In some cases VS incorrectly calculates that not enough memory is available (even though there’s memory available) and displays following error message: “Insufficient available memory to meet the expected demands of an operation at this time, possibly due to virtual address space fragmentation. Please try again later.“
“Please note that both before and after hotfix installation, there’re cases where Visual Studio accurately reports thatn’t enough memory is available to complete a given operation. You may still see out of memory dialogs when attempting to make a very large cut or copy (50+ MB of data at once). However, the fix should ensure that VS is legitimately unable to find enough memory to execute such a large operation before displaying this dialog. The frequency of such a dialog should be dramatically decreased after installing the hotfix,” noted Scott.
