Starts the MemMaker program, which optimizes your computer's memory by
moving device drivers and memory-resident programs to upper memory. To use
MemMaker, your computer must have an 80386 or 80486 processor and extended
memory. For more information about running MemMaker, see the chapter "Making
More Memory Available" in the MS-DOS User's Guide.
Do not use this command while Windows is running.
MEMMAKER [/B] [/BATCH] [/SESSION] [/SWAP:drive] [/T] [/UNDO] [/W:n,m]
Displays MemMaker in black and white. Use this option if MemMaker isn't
displayed correctly on a monochrome monitor.
Runs MemMaker in batch (unattended) mode. In batch mode, MemMaker takes
the default action at all prompts. If an error occurs, MemMaker restores
your previous CONFIG.SYS, AUTOEXEC.BAT and (if necessary) Windows
SYSTEM.INI files. After MemMaker has completed, you can review status
messages by viewing the contents of the MEMMAKER.STS file. (To view this
file, use a text editor such as MS-DOS Editor, or use the TYPE
Used exclusively by MemMaker during the optimization process.
Specifies the letter of the drive that was originally your startup disk
drive. Specify the current drive letter after the colon. This switch is
necessary only if the drive letter of your startup disk drive has
changed since your computer started. (The drive letter sometimes changes
because of disk swapping performed by some disk-compression programs.)
If the drive letter of your startup drive has changed and you do not
specify this switch, MemMaker will be unable to find your system startup
You do not need to use this switch if you are using Stacker 2.0,
SuperStor, or Microsoft DoubleSpace.
Disables the detection of IBM Token-Ring networks. Use this switch if
your computer includes such a network and you are having problems
Instructs MemMaker to undo its most recent changes. When MemMaker
optimizes your system's memory, it makes changes to your CONFIG.SYS and
AUTOEXEC.BAT files (and, if necessary, your Windows SYSTEM.INI file). If
your system doesn't work properly after MemMaker completes, or if you
are not satisfied with your new memory configuration, you can return to
your previous configuration by starting MemMaker with the /UNDO switch.
Specifies how much upper-memory space to reserve for Windows translation
buffers. Windows needs two areas of upper memory for its translation
buffers. The size1 value specifies the size of the first region; size2
specifies the size of the second region. By default, MemMaker does not
reserve upper memory for Windows; this is equivalent to specifying
