Unfortunately, calling GC.Collect() does not solve the problem, neither using SignFiles method nor Sign method.

In .NETCF Remote Performance Monitor, it shows that "Manage byte in use after GC" is stable, while "GC heap" shows increasing trend.

A trace to call stack shows the "OutOfMemoryException" comes from

SecureBlackbox.dll!SBUtils.__Global.SetLength(ref byte[] aBytes = null, int aLength = 65536) + 0x1e bytes

This occurs in both SignFiles and Sign methods.

SetLength() function allocates a managed array of bytes, which should be garbage-collected later. If GC doesn't work properly, there's nothing we can do about this.

As we couldn't reproduce any of your issues, I've moved the question to the helpdesk for further investigation.

Sincerely yours
