If this message appears on your screen, when you try to start SignWriter:

"Not enough memory to run SignWriter".

Then first do this:

1. Exit to Windows.

2. In Windows, go under Shut Down (as if you want to turn your computer off).

3. The Shut-Down Windows appears, giving you the following three options:

___Shut Down? (turn your computer off?)

___Restart Your Computer? (that really means...Restart in Windows?)

___Restart Your Computer in MS-DOS Mode?

Choose the third one. This means that when your computer restarts, it
never accesses Windows - it by-passes it.

Sometimes that is enough to free up the Low-Level memory, since it is
oftentimes Windows itself, that is using the Low Level memory.

So once you start directly in MS-DOS, try to start SignWriter. If
the program opens, you know that you cannot access the MS-DOS mode
FROM Windows, but must restart DIRECTLY in MS-DOS, by-passing Windows

Please tell me if this works. If not, then creating the PIF file is
the next choice, which is a little more complicated...

Good luck with this!
