A new beta test version of salflibc.dll can be downloaded from http://www.ftn95.co.uk/ftn95/salflibc.zip. This is a test version and should be treated as such, please back up your existing files.

This version contains an alternative mechanism for allocating runtime global memory blocks for FTN95 and SCC code. The new mechanism is designed for use with the boot.ini 3GB switch under 32bit Windows XP and similar operating systems that use this switch.

In order to use the new memory model you will need to unzip the download and replace your existing copies of salflibc.dll and salflibc.lib with the new version. It will also be necessary to set the environment variable that has the name FTN95_NEW_MEMORY. This can be set to any non-blank string value.

In order to revert to the old model, simply delete this environment variable. It will not be necessary to restore the previous version of salflibc.dll and salflibc.lib.

Environment variables are usually set from the Start button and the Control Panel. Select "System" and then the "Advanced" tab and finally click on the "Environment Variables" button. Enter the environment variable under "System variables".
