I need to run a program that will almost, but not entirely, not work at all. It needs 40 more K of ram-- and I've turned off all the extensions, turned off Multifinder (System 6.0.8 ), and tried using Optima. Is there anything else I can do to make it work?
. . .And then, how do I fix an "Address Error"?
Try moving some fonts, DAs, inits, cdevs, etc. from your system file.
If you have an emergency disk laying around, copy the system folder off of that and try booting from that. It's got a very small memory footprint. As well, (if System 6 is capable of this) make sure 32bit addressing is on, if you've got more than 8MB of RAM.
