Invalid Opcode Reported by SoftICE for DOS.

0 Likes

Problem:

An Invalid Op-Code fault is generated when I try to run SoftICE.  Why?

Resolution:

The following things can cause INVALID OP-CODE ERRORS:

1.) Failure to run EMMSETUP on S-ICE.EXE before installing.  Instructions on running EMMSETUP are detailed in the SoftICE manual.

2.) Running with SMARTDRIVE or another DISK CACHING program. Do not load SMARTDRIVE or any other disk caching program.  You need to comment these out of your CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT files.

3.) If you are using the Borland compiler, use the following command line switch when loading S-ICE.EXE in your CONFIG.SYS:  /EMM 500

Ex.  DEVICE=C:\SIDOS\S-ICE.EXE /EMM 500
