Same issue if you do same stuff by Hand?

For me it seems that this is no problem with your script but with Content in your book.

Are you using SVG graphics? If so could you remove them and check if this still happens.

If not, insert von SVG after the other, perhaps there's a Problem with a specific SVG in your documents.

svg2pdf.dll is a Plugin which converts SVG to PDF for displaying SVG graphics in FM documents (before FM 2019, I think)

you run the same process für 2 (different) books. The first ist OK the seconds has this error. So why are you assuming that Content is OK, when content is different?

This is an error at FrameMaker startup I think. Are you starting FrameMaker fresh for each book?

OK. Same book runs 2times...

Yes Maybe it's a Memory issue. Open Taskmanager and check Memory usage… Runs it up to 1 GB RAM?

I managed to solve a long time out-of-memory issue by deactivating "Auto Spellcheck" in preferences. It's worth to check to this.

Furthermore, check if you are using SVGs. If so remove them for testing an replace them by a PNG or similar stuff and check if this happens again.

Furthermore I have a lot of Memory Issues in FM2015 and 2017 when building up books from DITA with lot of topics.

Install FM2019 64bit if this solves the Problem and check Memory usage also.

No. I run script which does book2dita for one book, when it finishes for the first one, then it starts for the second one. I do all within one script

1100 MB is the value where FM runs out of Memory...

Closing Files is an approach indeed, if it solves this issue, you'll see.

Please deactive auto Spellchecker, to be sure you don't run into same trap than me.

Otherwise it's hard to find a good algorithm to avoid Memory issues. Good luck with this.

Otherwise try FM2019 64bit, that's the easier way

Thanks, I close files/books and I see in the end around 900 Mb. seems it frees the memory but it should not be 900 MB if it frees it properly.

But I'm thinking that there is a way to delete the object of the book/FM files.

Glad to here diabling autospell check works (at least that way the books process well).

There are some other memory issues in FrameMaker which cause these memory effect. Maybe SVG graphics could be another cause.

Check if Memory behavior is the same when you process both books by hand, So you can be sure (or not) that it's not your script which causes these problems.

With FM2019 some of These effects are solved. And with FM 201964bit FM is able to allocate more RAM so this will also solve this out-of-Memory issue

I have not disabled autospell check yet. Seems, Close(1) frees some memory.

When I do book2dita by hand it doesn't work at all. I need to get all .fm files and save to dita.

I am still thinking that it is possible to free unused memory. I will open new questions maybe someone knows that.

Big Thanks.
