Why Do I Need OS/2?

Question:
I have just started working with an application developed in VB that my co-workers say can only be run in the Windows environment through OS/2. Supposedly the program uses too much conventional memory to run in Windows alone. What can be done to make this application run under Windows alone (95 or 3.11)?

Answer:
I’m not sure why they told you that, but Visual Basic is designed forwriting applications for Windows 95 and NT 4.0 — not OS/2. Might they betalking about Visual Age, which is a product produced by IBM? It has manysimilarities to Visual Basic but is designed for OS/2 and other IBMoperating systems.

In addition, most Windows applications do not use conventional memory perse, like older DOS based applications did. Windows does a better job ofmanaging all the memory in the computer and uses it as itsees fit to run applications in.
