This particularly relates to running AutoCad for Dos under Seal. Autocad has it's own memory manager that wants total control over the Memory (EMS & XMS). The same problem exists trying to run it under Windows. I can run it in DOs using a desktop like Quikmenu III (As this has no mem manager). Is there a way to shell out the Seal Memory Manager to grant this program dedicated access to all memory ?????

And it probably never will be possible. It may be possible to write the contents of EVERYTHING in memory to a file, then exit SEAL (like WinXP's Hibernate feature), start the app, and then restart SEAL and load back the memory image, but I don't know if that would work well/at all.

You know, it's quite easy to exit seal and then start it again

what if there was a tiny 16bit tsr that got a list of execs from a config file or the registery ,could tell when they where running and seal wasent and controlled its boot up ,it wouldn't have the same efect on memory management ,could be tiny ........or you could add to the propertys of shortrtcuts so that some exited seal entirely and some diden't......miko
