config.sys. Because the file may be missing or corrupt, once at the A:\> prompt type the below commands.
If you are running MS-DOS 6.x or Windows 3.x type: copy himem.sys c:\windows
commands, you receive a prompt that the file already exists, ensure to overwrite it. Note: While this file is only located in the Windows directory, it may also to be located in the root or DOS directory. If you are running Windows 95, Windows 98, type: copy himem.sys c:\windows

I have an interesting problem. Essentially, the "problem" is that when I run some decompressing programs using the command prompt in XP (I'd call it the dos shell, but with xp there is not dos) I get an error: himem error ERROR: An Extended Memory Manger is already installed. XMS Driver not installed. Now.. I upgraded from 98, so there were some himem and emm386 lines in my config.sys which stayed after the upgrade. However, I removed them, AND ran the XP install fix thing.. essentailly installing it again. All to no avail. As well, if I delete himem.sys, it respawns (EMM386 doesn't exist). XP should have no need of it, not having dos and all, yet I can't get rid of it, himem error already or turn it off. I believe it may be loading from IO.sys but I have no idea how to change that.. Anyway.. any comments would be appreciated... Thanks, Jeremy. FYI: Sys specs: 40gb western digital HD on onboard promise ata100 controller. asus a7v133 MB.

Apr 10, 2002 #1 Nodsu TS Rookie Posts: 5,837 +6 Sorry about my bad memory, but there is some configuration file in Windows or System32 folder, that sets the options used for DOS emulation such as himem.sys and SB emulation :blush: . Maybe someone with XP can look it up. It could be that your decompressing software is incompatible with Windows XP. Also, some software has command line switches that regulate usage of XMS and EMS. PS this post should really be in Windows OS section Apr 10, 2002 #2 Rick TechSpot Staff Posts: 4,573 +65 When you boot into safe mode.. I assume this problem is not present? Try using MSCONFIG and/or SYSEDIT under Start/Run to eliminate any DOS-based drivers or software that might be loading at startup. Typing MSCONFIG in the RUN prompt will allow you to change startup items. It also allows you to edit some system files. SYSEDIT allows you to manually edit your system files.. Just use whatever you feel more comfortable with. Apr 10, 2002 #3 Mictlantec
