When attempting to Export large maps, I get the following error message "Not
enough storage is available to process this command". Is there a way to get
around this?

Oh ... I know that one.

My main computer has 8 GB memory and it can boot both Windows XP Pro 32-Bit
and Windows Vista Ultimate 64-Bit. The problem is, that 32-Bit Windows can
use only about 3.5 GB memory. The only workaround I found was to shut down
FM8 and the computer and to reboot 64-bit Vista, which gives me all 8 GB
memory. At that point it's always worked.

However ... I have found another workaround that works often but not always.
If I have the suspicion that the file size is only a bit too big, I reboot
32-bit Windows and load no other applications except FM8. Then I export
anew, with maximum memory resources available. It usually works, but not
