If you are using QEMM to load your files into upper memory and the FILES command has a plus (+) sign for a delimiter (for example, C:\QEMM\LOADHI /R:1 FILES+30), you will receive the following error message:

Bad Command or Filename


Using a plus sign as a delimiter is not standard for MS-DOS. If your QEMM command contains "FILES+nn", MemMaker returns the error message noted above.


To work around the problem, remove the QEMM "FILES+nn" command from your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and use the "files=" setting in your CONFIG.SYS file to specify the number of open files. Run MemMaker again to ensure that you have the optimal memory configuration.
