If you run version 2.0 or 2.5 of Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS in extended mode with MS-DOS 6.x, you may receive an error message stating that the memory manager is incompatible.


To work around this problem, do one of the following:
    Edit your CONFIG.SYS file to add the RAM parameter to the command for EMM386.EXE and remove the NOEMS parameter. For example:
          device=c:\dos\emm386.exe ram

    Run MemMaker. When you are asked if you use any programs that need expanded memory, set the option to "Yes."
This problem does not occur if you are running FoxPro 2.0 for MS-DOS in standard mode, FoxPro for MS-DOS 2.5 in any mode, or FoxPro for Windows.
