    EMM386 in Win2K?

    It appears EMM386 does not come in Windows 2000, but remarks in the config.nt file lead me to believe that it may be able to be resurrected . I need this for a DOS program to work according to a post on another site. I realize a dual boot situation may be my only answer, but was hoping someone could explain to me the EMM remarks in the config file and offer some advice. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Hi Emily,

    EMM386 does not exist in Windows 2000. EMM is a command line option that you can use as a substitute. You also do not have the wealth of options that EMM386.EXE provides, because meory in Windows NT/2000/XP is handled quiet a bit differently.

    You should not need to worry too much about the AltRegSets or BaseSegment setting for EMM. Let the system dynamically assign these values unless you know that you need them. If you need Expanded Memory emulation, use EMM = RAM in CONFIG.NT.

    I'd suggest setting up a dual boot Win 2000/Win 98 system, and rapidly wean away from Win 98.
