Background analyzer runs out of memory


I have installed PTVS 2.0 RC and the completion DB will not generate for python 64 bit installation. I use WinPython 64 bit ( with a few manually installed packages. When I hit generate completion DB it starts but after a while it stops and tells me the database is old or corrupt. I attached the analysislog.txt

Is some module causing this fault?

It looks like you're running out of memory. I doubt zmq is at fault here, and that version of WinPython is part of my standard test run, so I don't think any modules will be at fault.

You may have some luck if you close as many programs as possible while it's running (including Visual Studio - it will keep running). I have also made some fixes to reduce memory usage here, and while it isn't a specific bug, it may help. We're planning to release these fixes before RTM, so I'll let you know when it's available.

(I also renamed your issue to help us track it better.)
