Hi kenji,
thank you for posting this issue! We need a little more information, please:

Could you please attach the repository and the recording files in compressed in a ZIP package?
Do you have many screenshots in your repository or a lot of actions in the recording?

Best regards,
Christian

The requested files are now attached to this reply. I also attached the Web clientRepository.cs, just in case if you needed it.

The ZIP-file is password protected because of security reasons. Are there any way I could send you the password privately?

I keep getting exceptions when I'm working with this repository and the recordings. Exceptions are thrown when I try to open various recordings and when I make changes to the recordings. Sometimes I need to try opening a recording twice to be able to open it at all.

Do you see the attached file? I'm not sure if the attachment was successfully uploaded?

No, there is no file attached.

You can send the password to support_at_ranorex.com, but you can also send the whole zip file there.

Do you have many screenshots in your repository? That is usually the reason for OutOfMemory exceptions. Try removing unused screenshots and update to the latest Ranorex release, please.

I have now sent you 4 mails with 4 parts of my rar file.

Are there any way to filter search in the repository to find all screenshots or something like that?

Trying to attach part 1 here as the mails didn't get sent because of exceeding message file size....

Not working. What are the file size limit of attachments to your forum?

The maximum file size for attachements in the forum is 5 MB and for emails to support it's 10 MB.

However, in general you should never exceed a few hundred KBs when sending us a zipped project (unless you have thousands of images in there). Just make sure that all generated files/folders are not in the ZIP package, e.g. you should delete the "bin", "obj", and "Reports" folders before zipping the project directory.

The repository itself is 6417KB. Compressed (best) using WinRAR to zip-format it will be 3379KB.

My recordings is like (uncompressed) 1569KB, 6440KB, 5090KB, 6416KB and so on. So I'm not really sure how to upload this :D.

Are my recordings ridicously huge or? The recordings contain like 20-60 steps depending on what test case it is.

Actually, the repository would be the most interesting part of your project. Just zip the repository file and send it to support_at_ranorex.com. Thank you!

I think the problem is not the number of recording steps, but the repository integrated into the recorder file. Even if you have an external repository, up to Ranorex 2.3.1 the recording file contains a copy of the repository. You should definitely update to the latest Ranorex release 2.3.8 - we made some fundamental changes to the memory efficiency since V2.2.2 (see the release notes):

Thank you for your time. I just sent the repository to you by email.

I will read through the release notes and discuss with my company about an upgrade for Ranorex.

Thank you!
