4.1i - Windows 98 - JTAG Programmer and other software - "Out of environment space" error is reported

Description

Keywords: environment, space, install, Win 98, Windows, ME, 3.1i

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I am running Windows 98; after installing the software, an "Out of environment space error" is reported.

(The same problem can also occurs if JTAG Programmer is run.)

Solution

1

This error means that your environment space must be increased.

For Windows 98, try adding this line in your config.sys file:

SHELL=C:\<path to command.com>\command.com /p /e:8192

The number after "/e:" corresponds to the amount of environment space to set aside.

Ensure that the changes to your config.sys file are saved properly, and reboot the computer.

2

If JTAG Programmer still does not work, try this second solution:

- Right-click on the Device Programmer Start Menu icon.

- Select the Memory tab and set the initial environment to "1024".

- If this does not fix the problem, set this, along with the rest of the memory settings, to a large number (>2K).
