------------------------ MS-DOS v6.22 Help: LOADFIX ------------------------
<Notes> <Examples>                                                   <Index>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                                  LOADFIX
 
Ensures that a program is loaded above the first 64K of conventional memory,
and runs the program.
 
Syntax
 
    LOADFIX [drive:][path]filename [program-parameters]
 
 
Parameters
 
[drive:][path]
    Specifies the drive and directory of the program.
 
filename
    Specifies the name of the program.
 
program-parameters
    Specifies any of the program's parameters that you want to use.
 
                                      ***

<Syntax> <Examples>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                               LOADFIX--Note
 
Some programs will display the "Packed file corrupt" message when all or a
portion of the program has been loaded in the first 64K of conventional
memory and cannot run successfully. This error is most likely to occur when
you load device drivers into the upper memory area, thereby freeing more of
the first 64K of conventional memory. If MS-DOS displays this message, use
the LOADFIX command to ensure that a program is loaded above the first 64K
of conventional memory.
 
To use the LOADFIX command, include it at the beginning of the command that
starts the program.

<Syntax> <Notes>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                              LOADFIX--Example
 
To load a program named MYAPP.EXE (in the APPS directory of drive C) and use
the /C parameter (for example, to load the program in character mode), type
the following at the command prompt or include the command in your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file:
 
    loadfix c:\apps\myapp.exe /c
 
                                      ***
