Windows LM Client Drops to MS-DOS with High Virtual Memory Use

Article ID: 106435

  • Microsoft LAN Manager 2.2 Standard Edition

This article was previously published under Q106435


A Windows LAN Manager client with 4MB physical RAM and a temporary swapfile of about 12MB, running Windows 3.1 and several Windows applications from a network drive, may experience lockups, screen blackouts, and drops into MS-DOS. This generally happens during heavy use of the system's virtual memory--for example, when a large number of applications are running simultaneously.


This appears to have been caused by stack corruption in the MS-DOS enhanced redirector.


A fix is available from Microsoft Product Support services as CSD00.061.
