Usually, Resource Manager can be called from an MS-Windows™ icon and run with no modification to either Resource Manager or Windows™. However, the following set up is advised:
Cmd line: RM.BAT
Batch file: <leave blank>
Shortcut key: None
Run: Normal window
Tick the Close on exit box
In the Advanced Settings box, tick Suggest MS-DOS™ mode as necessary, leave others blank, particularly the first box: Prevent MS-DOS-based programs from detecting Windows. If this is ticked, automatic backup on leaving Resman (single-user versions) will not work.
Conventional memory, Total: Auto, Initial environment: 768, tick Protected
All other settings to Auto, tick Uses HMA
Usage: Window Initial size: 25 lines
Tick all other boxes unless advised otherwise.
All boxes can be ticked except for the Mouse boxes which should be unticked.
If you have any problems running Resource Manager via Windows™, first check that you have Resource Manager version 3.7, or later (although earlier versions will run under Windows™) then that you have the above settings. (These settings replace PIF files in earlier versions of MS-Windows™.) If you still cannot solve the problem, please contact us.NB: For mouse-related problems running under Windows™, see the Common Queries page.
