Okay, I will test it some more, but like I said, it doesn't work for me on real MS-DOS 6.22 (the "standard" DOS) w/ my Intel 486 Sx/25 8 MB RAM. I assume you are using some later version of MS-DOS, 7.10 perhaps, on your AMD 486?? How much RAM does it have? FPU? What programs do you run successfully with only HimemX loaded? What programs do you think I should test / try to run?

(I can only guess you also want more specific info from me: AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS, MS-DOS timestamps and version, programs timestamps and versions, 486 stats, etc.) In testing I used no AUTOEXEC.BAT and the CONFIG.SYS only had "DEVICE=C:\TEMP\HIMEMX.EXE" in it. No mouse driver loaded, no TSRs, no nothing. And either DJGPP programs (e.g. UNZIP 32-bit 5.52, not modified) or OpenWatcom stuff (e.g. UHarc 0.6b, also not modified) crashed the machine. However, in FreeDOS it all works (after an hour of use ... no crashes! go figure).

Know your limits.h
