My colleague's SharePoint Designer 2010 keeps crashing whenever he tries to open a stylesheet file that has more than 7,000 lines of code..

note that in my machine I can open files that has even more than 10,000 lines..

take in mind that we did the following..

  1. Cleared the SPD cache according to the following links 1, 2
  2. Running the installation file again in repair mode
  3. Uninstalled, and re-installed the SPD

running environment Windows Server 2008 R2

but nothing seem to be working so far... any suggestions please ?

  • Is the SPD located on the environment or his local computer? – user2536 Oct 16 '12 at 13:19
  • SPD and the environment are on the same computer (his local computer) – Anas Nakawa Oct 16 '12 at 17:12

Try the 64-bit version of SharePoint Designer.

  • we couldn't install the 64-bit version, because the installed office on the machine is a 32-bit – Anas Nakawa Oct 17 '12 at 5:13
  • For testing, I would try uninstalling all of Office so that you can try the 64-bit version. If it works for you, then install the 64-bit version of Office (for 2010 it is on the same disk and will automatically use that version if SPD 64-bit is installed). – John Chapman Oct 17 '12 at 13:50
