You mean this Vision Edit or something else? Yup, same authors:


Not sure what it does so uniquely, esp. since you already use FTE,
NDN, and SET (though I sympathize with your curiosity).   ;-)

EDIT: I guess you mean the "registered" VED286.EXE (which isn't openly
available) since apparently the normal shareware one isn't using DPMI
16-bit at all.

If XMS isn't being freed, it's either a bug in your HIMEM or a bug in
TAME or a bug in VED or maybe just a design limitation. I don't know.
Try using FreeDOS' HIMEMX or Jack Ellis' XMGR.


Or just search for latest Borland 16-bit RTM etc. files' updates.
Something like GVFM probably has latest, blindly guessing.
