    Hi,

    I'm trying to have DOS use more memory in the VM I created for it, but I'm having an issue in doing so.

    I followed multiple instructions from varius places, but nothing has been able to do what I need.

    Basically, what my problem is, is that I'm trying to have the Networking Client run in Upper Memory, but whenever I run the command EMM386, I get the message "Expanded Memory Services are unavailable." No error messages when the VM starts up, except for when the Networking Client says that there is not enough memory available.

    My files are:

    CONFIG.SYS:
    Code:
    DEVICE=C:\VMADD\VMADD386.SYS
    DEVICE=C:\DOS\SETVER.EXE
    DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS
    DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE NOEMS AUTO 4096 RAM
    DOS=HIGH,UMB
    FILES=30
    BUFFERS=25
    REM **********************************************
    REM ****  DOS Virtual Machine Additions      *****
    REM **********************************************
    DEVICE=C:\VMADD\CDROM.SYS /D:IDECD001 /L:E
    LASTDRIVE=Z
    DEVICEHIGH=C:\NET\ifshlp.sys
    
    AUTOEXEC.BAT
    Code:
    C:\DOS\SMARTDRV.EXE /X
    @ECHO OFF
    PROMPT $p$g
    PATH C:\NET;C:\DOS
    SET TEMP=C:\DOS
    
    @REM **********************************************
    @REM ****  DOS Virtual Machine Additions      *****
    @REM **********************************************
    SET DOSVMADD13=INSTALLED
    LH c:\vmadd\fshare.exe
    LH c:\DOS\MSCDEX.EXE /D:IDECD001 /L:E /M:8
    LH c:\vmadd\idle.com
    LH c:\vmadd\mouse.com
    
    LH C:\NET\net initialize
    LH C:\NET\nwlink
    C:\NET\netbind.com
    LH C:\NET\umb.com
    LH C:\NET\tcptsr.exe
    LH C:\NET\tinyrfc.exe
    LH C:\NET\nmtsr.exe
    LH C:\NET\emsbfr.exe
    LH C:\NET\net start
    
    
    And the output of the EMM386 command is:
    Code:
    MICROSOFT Expanded Memory Manager 386  Version 4.49
    Copyright Microsoft Corporation 1986, 1994
    
    Expanded memory services unavailable. 
    
      Total upper memory available  . . . . . .     0 KB
      Largest Upper Memory Block available  . .     0 KB
      Upper memory starting address . . . . . .  C600 H
    
    EMM386 Active.
    
    Any help would be appreciated.

    If more information is needed, let me know.

    Thanks!
