BrandonQB RAM Question
Say I have a chain of 5 QB applications that just shell to the next one after loading up come variables. Will QB use up my conventional RAM or will it take advantage of extended RAM?

QB can only use conventional memory. Otherwise you wouldn't need a library to use XMS.

That sounds about right. I think even though a DOS session has EMS/XMS, DOS will still force the program into conventional memory. The apps have to be written to utilize EMS/XMS in order to take advantage of it for storing data.
