Opening a DOS prompt on intstallation and reading program as 16 bit

0 Likes

Problem:

I am trying to run the Boundschecker 5.01 install and it keeps going to a DOS prompt and telling me that it does not have memory to install the 16 bit program, why is it read as 16 bit and not installing

Resolution:

The reason that the error message stating that BoundsChecker does not have enough memory to install and that it is trying to install through DOS is that it was downloaded with GetRight. This will inadvertently force the computer to view the program as 16 bit program instead of the 32 bit program that it is, thus causing the install to fail.

To correct this, simply download the program again, only this time, do not use GetRight. This should allow the program to open fine.
