Athlon 2,200Mhz CPU/1.5Gb DDR RAM/240Gb SATA hdd's RAID.
Just got lent a prog to try,it is a 329Mb MS-DOS file,and each time I try to run it I get the "To big to fit in memory" error.Why would a 339MB file not "find" 1.5Gb RAM insufficient? Can I get this file to exe correctly?
I think it has something to do with himem sys, the values may have to be changed. I seem to remember changing a 386 file, but this was for windows 95 and years ago. I don't know if it will be applicable to x\p.
Have a scroll through these, some are microsoft and sometimes the links don't work to well. click here=
Its the second large file he has asked me to try,and the second time its produced a DOS file when copied from the CD to my XP puter(he runs 98se)but the 1st time I have encountered a "To big for memory" error.I thought it might be due to my NTFS system originally,but that looks unlikely now.Never mind,I will just have to tell him to "suck it and see" for himself. ;-)
I was talking to dos friend over a drink and He thinks that dos will only take a maximum of 64Mb.
I think I have this right.
Win98 can run dos within a window so it can use windows bank switching. This can bank switch memory to multiple 64Mb sections of memory to accommodate the size of the programme, if the physical memory is available.
