Introduction

When trying to install WordStar 3.x the installation fails with a "Too Little Memory" error message. The PC has more than 512Kb of RAM fitted.

Reason

WordStar 3.3 was written for machines with around 128Kb of RAM. The install routine uses a signed compare to check for memory and will fail if you have MORE THAN 512kB (even though it says "not enough" you actually have too much).

Solution

Applicability to other versions of WordStar & other MicroPro programs
