If you install Windows or Windows for Workgroups when the third-party memory manager is not loaded, and then later you activate the memory manager, you may receive an error message stating that the "SystemROMBreakpoint=FALSE" line must be added to your SYSTEM.INI file.

You may also receive this error message if you do not indicate where the WINDOWS directory is located when you install a third-party memory manager.


To work around either of the above situations, add the "SystemROMBreakpoint=FALSE" line to the [386enh] section of the SYSTEM.INI file.


The "SystemROMBreakpoint=FALSE" line should be installed in the SYSTEM.INI file by the Setup program for Windows for Workgroups or Windows when some third-party memory managers (such as QEMM, 386MAX, and BlueMAX) are installed.
