I have variable name Char_Buffer and this variable will hold on more than  1GB to 2GB of log file for us to read the log. Problem is that if the log file is not more than 2GB all the task is working. But if the logs reached more than 2 GB, it will just loop forever and will not return any. I am thinking if the variable has limit in size.

Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Version 9 is an x86 application and therefore has size limitations for memory and file access. I suggest installing v10 x64 or v11 x64 as a test to determine if x86 is the limitation you are encountering.
