The system requirements for the EMS Magic TSR (version 2.1) are:
Resident conventional/upper memory, EMS 4.0 emulator (default):
Resident conventional/upper memory, EMS 3.2 emulator (/EMS32):
Resident conventional/upper memory, XMS fix only (/XMS3 /NOEMS):
The requirements for the Windows installer are:
*Although EMS Magic is a real-mode program, it uses 32-bit registers which are only found in 386 or later CPUs. It was possible to run previous versions of EMS Magic on 286 systems with a 386 opcode trapping TSR such as EMU386. Starting with version 2.1, this no longer works. A native 286 version of EMS Magic is currently under development.
**Only the 32-bit versions of Windows (x86) support MS-DOS emulation (NTVDM). Windows Vista x86 will run EMS Magic; however, the limitations of WDDM prevent graphical or full-screen DOS programs from running when using Vista graphics drivers. This is a limitation of Windows Vista itself and not EMS Magic. The workaround for this is to install XP graphics drivers on the Vista system.
