If SHSURDRV indeed works then there most likely is no problem with the XMS move function anymore.

I found another 486 (a DX2 66 MHz with 8 MB). I successfully ran the DJGPP binary unzip32.exe (v5.52 from Info-Zip). Perhaps if you send me the binaries which do crash so I can try them on that machine...

MS-DOS forever!
