It's a shareware from 1995 called Vision Edit, by PrimaSoft. 
It's not sophisticated like Aurora, but it's practical and I 
like it.

I fixed the problem yesterday: in the batch file that runs it, I
added a line "FDAPM speed3" to drop processor speed below 200
MHz, and then "FDAPM speed8" in the end to return to normal

This is the *third* thing I do in order to continue using this 
particular program. The other two are: loading Japheth's 
HDPMI16.EXE because apparently the original DPMI won't work 
under FreeDOS, and loading DPAKBD to make it FDAPM-aware.
