Just seen this topic on the SAM Broadcaster forums.
“SAM Broadcaster 2014.7 Unhandled Exception (not enough Storage)”
It seems a user was getting this error message as he was trying to add large amounts of music to SAM Broadcaster.
Message in Event log. Unhandled Exception (thread Creation Error Not enough storage available to process this command)
This SAM Broadcaster 2015 user sounds like he only managed to get 58,000 tracks of 88,000+ imported into SAM Broadcaster then the program wouldn’t let him add anymore.
Apparently the guys on StackOverflow say this is a Delphi problem with Heap Size exceeded.
The storage referred to is NOT the hard disk storage but the available heap memory available to the SAMBC.exe process. It’s not even about any system-wide memory exhaustion, but a process limit. Not sure if there are any other scenarios where this might happen or how SAM Broadcaster looks internally (except that it was written in Delphi) This sounds like a memory leak error and only Spacial Developers could fix that.
So it’s just another major bug that has never been addressed within SAM Broadcaster? At least that’s how I read it.
I’ve not heard of anyone having trouble loading large amounts of music into other radio software and it’s database.
The SQL database in SAM Broadcaster has always been dodgy anyway.
It’s not the first time I’ve heard of someone struggling to load a large amount of tracks into the program.
This user could have his library imported with very little hassle if he switched to RadioDJ free radio automation software.
I’ve never heard of RadioDJ suffering with huge memory leaks while importing music.
There are no memory leaks within RadioDJ it’s a pretty reliable piece of software.
It seems yet again SAM broadcaster just isn’t doing the job it was designed for.
The guy has even tried a computer reboot and still cannot get tracks imported into SAM Broadcaster without the program crashing on him.
Well I added a few more SAM Froze again (same error) I then rebooted my PC now I cannot do Tools->Maintenance->Verify songs as SAM Freezes part way through with a “stopped responding” message.
Why do people still pay Spacial Audio $$$ for badly programmed software that just doesn’t do the job it was designed for?
