Hi everybody.

I have a strange issue here when running depending on the size of the extent.

I'm running ArcGIS Desktop 10.6 with 64bit geoprocessing in Windows 10

if I run this code in the python window:

ext1 = arcpy.Extent(4054000,2329000,4260000,2597000)

ras1 =, 100, ext1)

everything works as expected and I get my raster



when I run:

ext2 = arcpy.Extent(4743000,4518000,5240000,5309000)

ras2 =, 100, ext2)

I get a popup window saying that the background processing has encountered a serious error.

Obviously I get the same issue running the tool from the sa toolbox even in foreground processing mode.


A colleague here with ArcGIS 10.5.1 with 64bit geoprocessing in Windows 10 does not absolutely have this issue.

Any idea ?
