file is not supported as it is higher than 4GB
I have encountered an error message in one of my simulations and I was unable to find any previous forum posts reporting a similar issue.
The specific error message is:
*** Exception (JBinaryData::CheckFileHead) at ..\source\JBinaryData.cpp:1231
Text: The size of file is not supported as it is higher than 4GB.
This simulation imports an STL geometry, converts to hdp then uses that to calculate normal vectors needed for mDBC. The generated binary file (Trommel_NormalData.nbi4) is indeed larger than 4GB.
My question is whether there is a particular reason why binary files are restricted to be less than 4GB? Is this a legacy of 32-bit operating systems or a necessary restriction for other reasons?
I'm happy to provide a copy of my simulation definition file if it will help.
Any suggestions or advice will be very much appreciated.
