Load SMARTDRV, MSCDEX, GMOUSE, DOSKEY.. should get you pretty low 🙂
The program is a bit like a bios update. Strict in what can be loaded, it will not even work with himem.sys loaded. The manual says it uses int/15 to access extended memory if available. It was made in 1989 for specialist data recovery. Looking over the internet I can't find anything about it.
I can load it in dosbox, it has the tools to eat conventional memory and reduce it below 500kb, bit I need it to run on a real pc.
Himem.sys of MS-DOS 6.2x has an option for such old programs, not sure if works with this one in particular, though.
The value is assuming Kilobytes.
If Himem.sys is installed that way, all Extended Memory is used as XMS (up to 64MB on old Himem.sys), with the exception of the INT15 value.
Programs using INT15 will merely see what Himem.sys has set aside.
