INSTALLHIGH runs a TSR program (a program that stays in memory), without
an environment, instead of using something like lh or loadhigh.
INSTALLHIGH loads a TSR program into high memory,whereas INSTALL loads
the TSR program into low or conventional memory.
INSTALLHIGH is CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS command.
drive The drive letter, e.g. C:
path The directory, e.g. \example\
filename The filename of the tsr to run, e.g. test.sys
options These are the options which will be passed to the TSR. They are
not options for the 'installhigh' command.
INSTALLHIGH loads the program specified by drive:\path\filename. It is
generally used to load TSR (terminate and stay resident) programs with
a minimal environment block. The options are for the program itself;
refer to documentation that came with your particular software for
supported options and usage.
Since INSTALLHIGH loads the driver into high memory there remains more
free space in low or conventional memory for other drivers or for
programs. To load up a driver or a program into high memory you first
have to load a driver like HIMEM, HIMEMX or JEMMEX in CONFIG.SYS /
INSTALLHIGH is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other file
in order to work.
IN CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS:
