Answer:

This can occur when the BCO utility runs out of memory and can usually happen on large projects or when there are large file sizes being checked out. To resolve this issue you need to make more memory available to the BCO utility. To do this:

  1. Browse to the StarTeam Cross-Platform Client root directory in Windows Explorer
  2. Locate the file called bco.stjava
  3. Edit the file using a text editor such as Notepad
  4. Add the following line options=-Xmx512m
  5. Save your changes

You should no longer get this error, however if you do please try to increase this setting from 512 to 1024 and try again. Failing this contact Borland Support.
