Windows DOS box: check Environment Space that's free?

Recommended Posts



with Win9x in the config.sys the line


can be used to increase the environment's size to be able to define much more "SET FOO=BAR" variables.

Is there a way to check how much space is currently left in the environment to define more SET parameters?

Thanks, Rudi.

I don't think so. Under 2000 and up I don't think you have to worry about

that though, it should be managed automatically by the VDM.

Under Win9x just set a sufficiently large value.
