Hi Oliver,

The error means that ECLiPSe was not able to obtain the memory it asks 
for. I assume this is because Eclipse reserves/uses a lot of memory for 
itself. You can reduce the amount of memory ECLiPSe reserves when you 
configure the engine with EclipseEngineOptions, see

The default reservation for the global/trail stacks is quite large, and 
it is likely that this is causing the problem, so you should probably 
change the default setting for this. I am not absolutely certain, but I 
think the default is about 800M, so try something smaller than this.
