Type 'System.ini' into run and hit enter. Post the results.

When you do type System.ini run and hit enter you will see something like this...

; for 16-bit app support
[drivers]
wave=mmdrv.dll
timer=timer.drv
[mci]
[driver32]
[386enh]
woafont=dosapp.FON
EGA80WOA.FON=EGA80WOA.FON
EGA40WOA.FON=EGA40WOA.FON
CGA80WOA.FON=CGA80WOA.FON
CGA40WOA.FON=CGA40WOA.FON
Now I know the formating of the above is going to be blown but what you have to do is this...

Add this line to your 'System.ini' file:
Scroll down to the [386Enh] Section and One space down.
Hit the 'Enter' key one time to create a blank line just below
the [386Enh]. In the blank line, type the following:

; Increases default stack pages from 2 to 8
MinSPs=8

Copy and paste the above because you need the ";" included.

Click Edit, Save, Edit, exit. Shut down and restart for the
changes to take effect.


(The default is 2. If required, increase increments by 2.)
(The * ; * works the same as * REM * works in AutoExec.Bat)
