    retro gear q:win98, gs2.54 more then 512mb ram

    hello,

    a friend of mine has an old computer and wants to use his old 98se.
    now he wants to install gs 2.54 and needs more ram.
    i know that 98se supports only 512mb of ram.
    i heard of some tweak to allow 1gb of ram.

    q: is that working with gigastudio
    what are the tweaks/ extensions???

    thanx for any help

    One GREAT tip: find out how the Search function on this forum works!
    This topic has been discussed again and again and again....

    Rest assured about the memory: I run 3 Win98SE PC's with 1 Gb each, and each of them can handle more Gig instruments than XP machines with 2 Gb!

    Make sure you have these lines in your System.ini file:

    [vcache]
    MinFileCache=16384
    MaxFileCache=16384


    Success,

    PS: use the keywords Windows Memory Cache etc
    PS2: it's sad to see that this urban legend about Windows 98 and memory keeps coming back
