windows 3.1 memory limitatons (256mb)
« on: November 16, 2014, 01:15:53 AM »
Windows 3.x has a memory limit detailed here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/84388

A safe max RAM size would be 256MB, since even though Windows 3.x has a stated limit of 512MB in Standard Mode, the limit is 256MB in 386 Mode.

If you go above this limit you might run into memory errors or errors like: "error loading vga.drv"
This was tested on Windows For Workgroups 3.11.
