Archicad 27 using 100% of my RAM (32GB)

When I open Archicad it takes about 15+ minutes to load into Archicad 27, which is unusual.

Once I'm in the program I want to select a roof that I'm working on, once I click on the roof, it takes another 10+ minutes just for my laptop to say that "your computer doesn't have enough memory to perform the operation."

 

I looked at my system to try and figure out what's going on, and it uses 100% of my processor and 100% of my RAM.

I re-installed Archicad to see if it works, and even if I start a solo project, it takes up all my RAMand processor speed and just reboots my laptop after a while.

Does anyone else have this problem? 

And how can this be solved as I need it for school. (I have a deadline next Wednesday, the 20th of March)

Does your local hard drive (the one Archicad is installed on) have plenty of space?

Hey Barry,

 

I have +- 500GB of space on that harddrive left of the 1TB.

Have you restarted (completely shut down) your computer lately?

Many people don't, and this can help.

 

You mention opening a 'solo' project.

So this file is teamwork/BIMcloud?

If others have access to this file, are they having the same issues?

 

If you open a new file from the default template, and add just one roof.

Does this have the same problem?

 

If not then I would suspect something in the file, such as many Solid Element Operations.

Is it AC or the CineRenderNEM using the resources?
