Windows and Quarterdeck QEMM386 Require WINHIRAM.VXD File
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows versions 3.0, 3.0a, 3.1, 3.11
If you use the Quarterdeck QEMM386 memory manager with Windows, you may receive the following error when you try to start Windows in 386 enhanced mode:
CANNOT FIND A DEVICE FILE THAT MAY BE NEEDED TO RUN WINDOWS IN 386 ENHANCED MODE
YOU NEED TO RUN SETUP AGAIN.
PRESS ANY KEY TO CONTINUE
This error message is displayed because QEMM386 and Windows require the WINHIRAM.VXD file to transfer memory control when Windows loads.
The WINHIRAM.VXD file is copied to the QEMM directory when you install QEMM386. The above error normally occurs when the QEMM386.SYS file is moved to another subdirectory without the WINHIRAM.VXD file. To correct this problem, copy the WINHIRAM.VXD file to the same subdirectory as the QEMM386.SYS file. If this does not correct the problem, try adding the subdirectory that contains these files to the MS-DOS path.
