Hi All!

I've been looking high and low for the following DOS Memory Management Software there were not as common as the leading software during their time (QEMM, QMAX, Netroom):

V Communications Memory Commander 4.0 (I think there are older versions around but this version can work with version 6 of MSDOS, I was able to find someone with a copy :):):) but alas no serial number :(:(:()

Softlogic Solutions Memory Miser 386 (Now this is a toughie to find, but if anyone...)

Cheers to all.:)

Hi George,

I am attaching the software in several zip file parts. Part 4 is split into 3, they would need to be joined into one zip file. Expanded all files should fit in a 720k floppy image.

Cheerio!

You could try this s/n: M202415-MKMR

It's for v2.10

Nope. That won't work. Serial number seems version specific. V3.03 serials also wont work. This also wont work M209037-KXYC. Some serial sources only list M209800, now examining the hex dump of the files shows this to be correct, problem is, the last 4 characters are missing and must be encrypted somewhere.

Something is wrong. Part4.1 & 4.2 give me "unexpected end of archive"!..

Most likely you will need to append all of part4 into one file with a command like

COPY /B PART4.1.ZIP + PART4.2.ZIP + PART4.3.ZIP PART4.ZIP

Might require changes depending on version of OS being used.

Yes, this is correct. I sorry I was not able to say that I had to split the file due to size restrictions for each individual file uploaded.

In addition to the above; two other DOS memory managers that was once available I mention below and maybe someone might know of their whereabouts:

A. Quadtel QMaps v5.16


QMAPS stands for Quadtel Memory Al-
location and Paging System; UMB Pro
refers, of course, to Upper Memory
Blocks. QMAPS is an EMS 4.0 memory
manager that uses EMS to load device
drivers and TSRs into upper memory.

QMAPS isn't as full-featured as
386Max or QEMM, but it supports more
memory specifications than NetRoom (v2.01 of Netroom)
or Maximizer (v3.3): EMS 4.0, XMS, VCPI, and
VDS. QMAPS cannot instance device
drivers or TSRs within a Windows DOS
session, but it is compatible with Win-
dows 3.x and DOS 5.0.

B. Maximizer V3.3 from SoftNet Com-
munication.

If all you want to do is manage upper
memory, and if you don't mind a little
manual effort to help Maximizer find
and use upper memory blocks, Maximiz-
er is a less expensive alternative to the
other memory manager products. Dur-
ing installation, you give Maximizer
commands (op codes) to tell it which
areas in upper memory to use.

Maximizer can load device drivers and
TSRs into upper memory, and it can
make more than 640 KB available to
your DOS applications. It
won't give you EMS 4.0, XMS, VCPI,
VDS, or DPMI memory. But it works
with Windows and DOS 5.0, and it lets
you instance device drivers and TSRs
within an enhanced-mode DOS session.
