I have been trying to load a large emf format file (~680MB) and get this error -

Error loading EMF data
Not enough storage is available to process this command.
EMFOverlay.cpp - 102

The machine I'm using is a Dell Precision 490 with 3GB of RAM.

    Unfortunately there is not much that can be done about that error as it is the Windows call being used to load the EMF file that is generating the error and not something in our code. It sounds like the EMF file is just too large to be loaded on your machine.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks for the reply, I thought it might be, I've asked the company that supplied for a reduced version.

    You might try opening the EMF file in Photoshop or some other image editor that uses scratch disks to deal with large files. Then you could reduce the image dimensions to a size that your machine can handle.
