After you upgrade to MS-DOS 6.0 or later, a "not enough memory" error
message may appear or your system may stop responding (hang) when you try
to run an application generated with Computer Associates' Clipper program.
To correct this problem, add the NOEMS and NOVCPI switches to the
EMM386.EXE command in your CONFIG.SYS file. For example:
device=c:\dos\emm386.exe noems novcpi
The application generated with Clipper should now run on your system.
You can also work around this problem by using the RAM switch instead
of the NOEMS switch with EMM386.EXE or you can remove the DEVICE=
statement for EMM386.EXE from your CONFIG.SYS file.
EMM386.EXE is a Virtual Control Program Interface (VCPI) server. VCPI
is a program interface that allows expanded memory services (EMS)
emulators and DOS extenders to coexist within a 80386/80486
NOTE: Clipper is an XBASE compiler.
