have you tried increasing the memory, following these instructions?

"Q: XXE freezes when I try to open large XML files. Is there a workaround for this problem?

A: This is probably an out-of-memory error due to the fact that your XML file is very, very, large or contains loads of high-resolution images.

By default, XXE is configured to use at most 512 megabytes. This limit can be increased but this requires you to edit a script file using a text editor"
