It might be that you are trying to execute some large powershell processes and you get this System.OutOfMemoryException error. It happened to me when working with the new (still unreleased) version of This is Merging! for Dynamics NAV.
If you are suffering from the same issue, what Powershell is telling you is that the Powershell session is using more memory than allowed by the system.
And since Waldo released a Powershell Wrapper for NAV (which is what TIM uses) and I was getting this error, I thought it would be interesting to make a quick blog post about it. Continue reading
As all of you might be aware of, Microsoft published the cmdlets that were destined to speed up the merging of objects. But if you have tried them you will agree that they can be definetly not user-friendly.
Due to this, it fills me with pride to be able to publish this utility with user interface based on these tools, and also adding some other features that allow for greated speed and to create a hub for all the tasks in a single application.
This is Merging!, TIM from now on, offers several options to speed up our merges.

After having had time to play with the new merge cmdlets and having understood the way they work I must say I am quite happy with them.
The issue I’ve had with the new tools is the “feel” when using them. They are not “user-friendly” and I know that it is meant for developers and devs should be used to the powershell environment. Regardless of that I have built a completely free NAV module you can download here that gives that NAV feel we are all used to Let me know if you like it.
My opinion is that using these tools is really fast for the tasks they do, and they do them surprisingly well (I’ll confess, I was quite sceptical at first).
Today the official NAV team has published in their official blog the new Cumulative Update 9 for NAV2013R2.
In this CU9 we can find new cmdlets for Powershell and speed up the merge between versions or products. These utilities are prepared for different versions and not just NAV2013R2 but it is not compatible with dataports, forms oR section-based reports.
