PRB: RUN Command Error: "The KB Required Value Is Too Large"

ID: Q101593

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a


The following error message occurs when you attempt to start an MS-DOS session from FoxPro for Windows using the RUN or "!" (without the quotation marks) commands:

   The KB Required value is too large. Decrease PIF KB Required.


There is not enough memory to start an MS-DOS session.


Use one of the following workarounds:

  • Use the PIF Editor, located in the Main group in Windows 3.1, to open the FOXRUN.PIF file, which is located in the FoxPro development directory (usually FOXPROW). Decrease the KB Required value in the Memory Requirements text box. -or-
  • Free up more conventional memory by modifying your CONFIG.SYS and/or AUTOEXEC.BAT files. Use the REM command to comment out any unnecessary devices or programs, or use an upper memory block manager such as EMM386.EXE to load devices and programs into upper memory.
