PRB: APPEND May Cause R6903 When Compiling with C/C++ 7.0

PSS ID Number: Q107435 Article last modified on 01-25-1995



The information in this article applies to:
- The Microsoft C/C++ Compiler (CL.EXE), included with: Microsoft C/C++ compiler for MS-DOS, version 7.0


Attempting to compile generates the following message:

R6903: DOS Extender DPMI host does not have 32 Bit Interrupt Extensions


The may be caused by interference from a terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) program such as the MS-DOS APPEND utility.


Do not load APPEND. In most cases, APPEND is loaded in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, so you can simply remove it from that file.


The above error message is most commonly generated erroneously, in low memory situations. For further information, query in the Microsoft Knowledge Base on:
