If your CONFIG.SYS, AUTOEXEC.BAT, or SYSTEM.INI file has 512 or more lines, MemMaker displays the following error message:

MemMaker cannot continue because the AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS, or Windows SYSTEM.INI file is too long. The file must be less than 512 lines long

* To undo MemMaker's changes, press ENTER.


To work around this problem, exit MemMaker, reduce the size of the file that is causing the error, and restart MemMaker.


You can use MS-DOS Editor to determine the length of a text file. For example:

    Start MS-DOS Editor and load a text file such as AUTOEXEC.BAT. For example, type the following and press ENTER:


    Press CTRL+END.

    The number of lines in the text file is displayed in the lower-right corner of the screen.
