If NewWave is in your AUTEOXEC.BAT file when you run MemMaker, MemMaker cannot continue if you quit NewWave.


To work around this problem, either add NewWave to the MEMMAKER.INF file or remark out NewWave when you run MemMaker.

To add NewWave to the MEMMAKER.INF file:
    Edit the MEMMAKER.INF file with an ASCII text editor, such as MS-DOS Editor.
    Add NewWave to the end of the MEMMAKER.INI with an asterisk (*) before the program name. For example:


    To remark out NewWave when you run MemMaker:
    In your AUTOEXEC.BAT file, use the REM command to remark out NewWave. The line should appear as follows:

    rem newwave

    Restart your computer by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL.
    Run MemMaker.
    When MemMaker has completed, remove the REM command from your AUTOEXEC.BAT file so that NewWave can load again.
    Restart your computer.
