‘Out of Memory’ after Creating Several Barcodes

IDAutomation has issued an update to the Linear ActiveX Control and DLL product that solves a problem where “out of memory” errors occur after creating approximately 30,000 or more barcodes in a short period of time on Windows XP. The first update was released October 30, 2002, although other updates have been posted since.
