not enough memory error

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



I just installed dosemu with the help of dosemu
for dummies and it works fine (good job!). 
However, I'm trying to run this dos program and 
it exits with this message: "Not enough memory, 
required 559, available 393488"

But when I run mem /f it tells me that I have 
630K of free conventional memory (see below). 
Do you know why the program believes it does not 
have enough memory when in fact it does have 
plenty? Is there a way to "fool" the program 
so it runs.
