I just wanted to notify you guys that when I tried to build the help content with the VS extensions i got out of memory exception. Here are my project and my machine details:


- 1 content layout file

- almost 1000 conceptual topics

- 2200 images

Machine: Win 7 x86, 4 GB RAM, Intel Core Dou E6550 (2.33GHz).


Now i switched to another machine with more RAM (8 GB) and in the task manger i see that the used memory for this process (devend.exe) is 1.801 MB and it raises to over 2.4G and then back.

I hope that you find this information useful.
