When you are using the Microsoft Draw program with Works for Windows, Draw may issue the error message

Sorry, the Microsoft Draw window may look incorrect owing to insufficient system resources

for the following reasons:

  1. Less than 220K of your memory is available, or less than 15-percent of your system resources is free, as reported by the Program Manager's Help About dialog box. To provide more system resources, close one or more applications running in the background, remove terminate-and-stay-resident programs (TSRs) from the AUTOEXEC.BAT and unnecessary device drivers from the CONFIG.SYS file.
  2. No default printer is selected in the Printers section of the Control Panel. To correct this problem, set a default printer in the Windows Control Panel.

NOTE: This problem occurs in Works for Windows only. It does not occur in Word for Windows or Publisher.
