What Kind of Memory?
If you need to run an old MS-DOS program, you may find that it needs to have some expanded memory available to work properly. To set up a program of this type, first create a shortcut to the program. To do this, use the right mouse button to drag the file's icon onto the desktop.
Once you've created a shortcut right-click it and choose Properties. In the dialog box, click Memory. Now you can tell the system what type of memory you need.
In general, we can't tell you what settings to use because these settings are very dependent on the specific program you need to run. However, we do suggest that you use Auto in Expanded (EMS) memory. If this won't work, try some other settings. After you make all your selections, click OK.
