Kiwi CatTools error: Out of string space

Overview

This article details a resolution to the following error that appears when running activities in Kiwi CatTools:

Out of string space

Environment

  • All Kiwi CatTools versions
  • All Windows versions

Cause

Kiwi CatTools was developed for small to medium-sized networks and therefore has limitations when certain activities are run with a large device count. When running certain activities with a device count of more than 100, the Visual Basic 6 (VB6) programming language limitation of 4GB of memory used for the application will return an error, such as when compiling, converting text files to the reports and comparing back up configs.

Resolution

  1. Verify the following:
    • Type of activity that is being run
    • Device count
    • Types of devices that the activity is being run against.
  2. Lower the device count and spread the device out over two or more activities.
