Unloading Out-of-Control DLLs

Unloading Out-of-Control DLLs

When I work with VB under Windows 95, I’ll often do somethingwith a program that causes Windows 95 to be unstable. Normally,I would shut down Windows 95 and restart to clear out all loadedVBXs and DLLs, but I recently found an easier way.

Create a DOS batch file called RESTART.BAT with these contentson your hard drive:

          EXIT

Within Windows 95, create a shortcut to this batch file. Underthe properties, make sure that you select MS-DOS mode under ‘Program/ Advanced’. This method is much faster than rebooting the machine.
