DoubleSpace Err Msg: 'Not Enough Conventional Memory...' (95494)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.0
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
This article was previously published under Q95494
If you start your computer using the interactive startup option in
order to free enough memory to run the DoubleSpace Stacker conversion
option, you may receive the following error message after DoubleSpace
restarts your computer:
Not enough conventional memory
When you start your computer and press the F8, F5, or SHIFT key to
free enough conventional memory to run the DoubleSpace Stacker
converter, you must also use the interactive startup option when
DoubleSpace restarts your computer. If you do not use this option, you
will not have enough memory to complete the conversion.
If you use the F5 key to bypass the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files,
the only directory in the PATH environment variable is C:\DOS;
therefore, DoubleSpace cannot start Stacker.
To work around this situation, either use the F8 key to bypass some of
your device drives before and during the Stacker conversion process,
or remark out (REM) some of the device drivers and
terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs in your CONFIG.SYS file.
