The following is a copy of an article from Alan Lamielle. It solves file sharing issues for Scrap Dragon on Windows 7 Pro. We should make sure that all Windows 7 Pro SD servers have the settings described in this article:

mount error(12): Cannot allocate memory
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page ( mount.cifs)

After checking the Event Viewer System log, I found the following error:

Source: srv
Event ID: 2017
Level: Error
The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations.

Some research led me to find this Google Groups discussion about the problem and this Microsoft Technet article discussing the solution (look at the bottom of the page). Apparently you need to tell Windows that you want to use the machine as a file server and that it should allocate resources accordingly.

Set the following registry key to ‘1′:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

And set the following registry key to ‘3′:


After making these changes and restarting, I haven’t seen this issue arise again. Fixed!
