Ark Devkit Constantly Crashes. Uses too much memory?

I downloaded the dev kit the other day and I’ve been having troubles getting it to cooperate.
I managed to create my own mod folder and copied over the 3 generic mod files and renamed them.
Whenever I try to open a blueprint such as the PrimalGameData_BP, the dev kit will ‘freeze’ and the ram usage will constantly creep up to around 8GB.
Once it reaches that point (with about 2-3GB free RAM on my computer), Windows says I’m low on memory and starts closing programs like Steam and the Dev Kit.
I’m not sure why it’s doing this even when I have a 8GB pagefile set up and Windows doesn’t even attempt to use it.
Any ideas or insight?
