WMI out of memory on Get-Printer script

Ok so I have this script:$Computer = "."
gwmi win32_printer -computer $Computer| select Name,DriverName,PortName | export-csv "C]except when I run it I get the followingGet-WmiObject : Out of memory
At \my.domain.com\netlogon\Scripts\PS\get-printer.ps1:2 char:5
+ gwmi <<<< win32_printer -computer $Computer| select Name,DriverName,PortName | export-csv “C:\ServerName-Printers
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:slight_smile: [Get-WmiObject], ManagementException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : GetWMIManagementException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetWmiObjectCommand
I am running this locally on the print server and have even tried to run the following command as suggested by another article I found on the internetset-item wsman:localhost\Shell\MaxMemoryPerShellMB 512thenPS n] But the results are the same.

I am confused, could someone tell me if I am doing something wrong or what I can do to get this to run?
Is there a problem with my code?

I would look into the hotfix noted in this article. You do not mention OS but I am assuming this is your issue.

let me know.

Sorry, OS is Windows Server 2003 R2 sp2 (32-bit)

I’m having the exact same issue, and have struggled with it for some time w. no luck.

Did you come across a solution?

So is that all there is to your script? Have you tried running just the Get-WMIObject portion of the script by itself and see if you still get the exception?

gwmi win32_printer

What does this line return on that server?
Get-Item wsman]
