When opening or building a board in Windows 2000 or Windows XP, the Builder hangs. I am experiencing this Build Process Notes section in User's Guide - when I look in Task Manager, there are 1 or more BABTCU.exe processes listed.

Build-A-Board uses multiple processes to build boards - on newer systems with multi-core processors, this can dramatically increase build times. On older systems, and on older versions of Windows (2000/XP), this can cause memory issues, or hung processes. You may also receive a windows error (0xc0000142 - Application fails to initialize). Increasing system memory or virtual memory may help, but there is also this information: Microsoft Knowledgebase KB126962

Here are step by step instructions (Registry update/system restart required)

  1. Start Menu | Run
  2. Type in Regedit, then OK/[Enter]
  3. Find the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Session Manager/SubSystems
  4. Find the Windows entry in the SubSystems key
  5. Edit the entry, and look or the area called SharedSection=1024,3072,512 (numbers may vary)
  6. Change to SharedSection=1024,12288,1024
  7. OK to Update, close Regedit, then restart your system
