Watcom SQL with ODBC (On network) = Out of memory

 Watcom SQL with ODBC (On network) = Out of memory

Hi everyone,

I am currently experience a problem which I don't know how to solve it.
I hav written an application using Watcom SQL and Visual Basic.  This
application runs fine under stand-alone Windows (wfw 3.11) environment.
But it just cannot start-up under network environment.  It seems to me
that I am running out of the "640kb" memory area.

"mem/c" tells me that I got only 475kB.  I have tried my best to delete
off all the unneccessary drivers.  One thing I found is DOS is using
60kB of conventional memory, and if I could move it to upper memory, then
I think I solve the problem.

I have include the "device=emm386.exe noems" and "dos=umb,high" in my
config.sys file.

I know some of you may say Windows will not confind to 640kB of memory,
but apparently it does.  This is why you cannot run a lot of applications
under network environment.

Any helps and hints would be more than welcome.
Thanks in advance for the information,
Vi

Are both of these enviroments  on the same machine or are you trying
to start Watcom on another machine connected to the network? I ask
this because Watcom needs to have a Set Temp= or it won't run.

Try Qemm. Its the best memory managment software I've used. Every
machine I've put it on has at least 580k +. I wouldn't set up a
computer of mine or a clients w/o Qemm. I have no ties to QuarterDeck
I just trust Qemm.

Which version of Watcom??? An early version of the 3.2 network requestor was
not releasing memory properly and would cause "out of memory errors"  If
you're running version 3.2 go to their web-page and get the updates.

And remember, shortly you'll be running "Sybase SQL-Anywhere" after
Syabse announces it's name change for Watcom... I miss the old old days
when people said, "You're running Wat-What?"
