This is what you need to Add to your Config.sys files in the Root of C:\ in explorer

DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS


DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE

I have separated them so you could see the two lines that you need to had to Config.sys.

Open the file in Notepad and insert the lines but no spaces between them just under each other. You then Save the file and restart the computer for it to work

The best way is to create a boot disk specically for this program.

You will need to ensure the line which I think from memory was

Devicehigh=c:\windows\emm386.exe (I stand to be corrected)

is in the config.sys file on the boot disk.
