Command: installhigh

  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.

Syntax:

  installhigh=[drive][path]filename [options]
              drive     The drive letter, e.g. C:
              path      The directory, e.g. \example\

Comments:

  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 /
  FDCONFIG.SYS.
  INSTALLHIGH is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other file
  in order to work.
